Microplastics debris in the marine environment have been widely studied across the globe. Within these particles, the most abundant and prevalent type in the oceans are anthropogenic microfibers (MFs), although they have been historically overlooked mostly due to methodological constraints. MFs are currently considered omnipresent in natural enviro...
DOWNLOAD IT FREE OF CHARGE: Coastal, semi-enclosed aquatic ecosystems of sub-polar regions surrounded by continental glaciers are among the most sensitive environments to climate change. The Beagle Channel (Argentina-Chile, ∼55°S, 71°-66°W), which is part of the Patagonian Cold Estuarine System of aust...

El Canal Beagle es un pasaje interoceánico conectando los Océanos Pacifico y Atlántico en el extremo sur de Sudamérica, donde confluyen intensos procesos de mezcla entre aguas marinas y continentales y una creciente presión antrópica. Desde julio 2014 se caracterizó la variabilidad estacional y espacial de las estructuras termohalinas en el Canal B...

We performed a 30-month field study in a highly turbid, hypertrophic shallow lake from the Pampa Plain (Argentina) in order to investigate the occurrence of steady-state phases of phytoplankton, with an emphasis on the effect of subtle, but measurable, increase in light availability. The results revealed that a steady-state condition prevailed duri...

ASTRAL is an EU-funded project that aims to define, support, and promote Integrated Multi-Trophic Aquaculture (IMTA) to develop sustainable aquaculture production across the Atlantic area while developing IMTA production chains for the Atlantic markets. Focussing on a regional challenge-based perspective, ASTRAL will conduct research in five IMTA laboratories. Including ‘open offshore’ labs in Ireland and Scotland, ‘recirculating land-based labs in South Africa and Brazil, and host a ‘prospective IMTA’ lab in Argentina. The primary objective is to increase circularity by up to 60% in comparison to monoculture baseline aquaculture, while subsequently boosting revenue diversification for producers in the aquaculture industry. The ASTRAL project will share, integrate, and co-generate knowledge, technology, and best practices, whilst fostering a collaborative ecosystem across the Atlantic area.
