Biosensors for healthy oceans

July 26, 2016 12:50 - 2:05 pm


Growing concerns about the health of the oceans and their capacity to provide resources, goods and services are increasing the demand for monitoring of marine water quality and environmental early warning systems. Real-time in situ monitoring of marine chemical contaminants, including emerging pollutants and biohazards such as algal toxins, is of the utmost importance for the sustainable management and exploitation of the seas and their resources. The ultimate goal is to obtain more effective monitoring of the marine environment and its status in line with the Marine Strategy Framework Directive, which aims to achieve a ‘Good Environment Status’ of EU seas and oceans by 2020.
