Biological effects of environmental pollution in marine coastal ecosystems (BEEP)

Biological effects of environmental pollution in marine coastal ecosystems (BEEP)

Objective

Biological markers allow the direct determination of pollutant impact of living organisms in aquatic systems. While new emerging biomarkers are actually under evaluation, some common markers are in a validation-phase and may be used as assessment tools for the quality of the marine environment. The goal of this research programme is to evaluate the potential of using biological marker determined in marine organisms (fish, bivalves) as a means of assessment of chemical contamination and to investigate the socio-economic implications for certain selected zones for coastal communities dependent from marine resources. Different types of coastal European environments (Baltic Sea, Mediterranean Sea, North Atlantic Sea) will be investigated by the participants who will co-operate on the three selected environments through a long term study
