This project aims at developing state-of-the-art molecular tools for the rapid and cost-effective screening of plankton samples for the presence of bivalve and crustacean species of commercial value. This project is in collaboration with BIM and is funded by the European Maritime Fisheries Fund.
PhD student Signe Martin is investigating microparasites in order to assess their impact on commercial crustacean species.
This research takes an ecosystem services modelling approach combined with farm-level bio-economic models to investigate optimal farming systems that maximise the potential of semi-natural and improved agricultural areas of diverse farms.
This collaborative research project, funded by the EPA, is informing the development and implementation of policy by improving understanding of microplastic (MP) sources, pathways and environmental fate in freshwater systems in Ireland and making recommendations for monitoring of MPs.
