Final Report Summary - ORAQUA (European Organic Aquaculture  - Science-based recommendations for further development of the EU regulatory framework and to underpin future growth in the sector)
Organic farming is one of the most dynamic food production sectors in Europe although it still feeds a relatively young market segment. Organic agriculture is based, according to IFOAM, on the four principles of health, ecology, fairness and care. Furthermore, IFOAM defines...

Periodic Report Summary 2 - PREFACE (Enhancing prediction of tropical Atlantic climate and its impacts)
Project Context and Objectives: The tropical Atlantic climate recently experienced shifts of great socio-economic importance. The oceanic changes were largest in the eastern boundary upwelling systems, globally important regions for marine productivity and climate. African...

Final Report Summary - ATP (Arctic Tipping Points)
Roughly 50 % of the Arctic sea ice has already melted. Indications are that we indeed experienced a “tipping point” for the ice cover, in that it will not return to a year-round cover but will change to a purely seasonal cover of first-year ice. We also investigated...

Periodic Report Summary 2 - FISHBOOST (Improving European aquaculture by advancing selective breeding to the next level for the six main finfish species)
Project Context and Objectives: Only about 10% of today’s global aquaculture production use genetically improved stocks. In Europe, some breeding programmes consist of only the basic components of a breeding scheme. Hence, there is large potential to increase efficiency and...

Final Report Summary - BPT (BEYOND PLATE TECTONICS)
Plate tectonics and the Wilson cycle were recognized as key elements of geodynamics in the 1960’s. Plate tectonic theory was extremely successful in providing a framework for understanding deformation and volcanism at plate boundaries, and allowed us to understand how...
