Projects on Fisheries-Genetics

Genetic Catalogue, biological reference collections and on-line database of European Marine Fisheries. An EU 5th Framework Programme project in the area of "Quality of Life and Management of Living Resources".
Project period: 2002 - 2006

A population genetic study on Mediterranean Blue Shark for stock identification and conservation. It represents a robust baseline of data describing the genetic stratification of BS in the Mediterranean.
Project period: 2008 - 2012

A support to the development of sustainable European aquaculture and a contribution to the achievement of the "Good Environmental Status" (GES) as requested under the Marine Strategy Framework Directive.
Project period: 2013 - 2015

Genetic close-kin analysis (Lophius piscatorius) on white anglerfish for abundance estimate in support of sea fisheries management under the CFP, establish the genetic population structure of the white anglerfish across the Atlantic FAO fishing area 27. Project period: 2017 - 2021

Collaborative project providing end-user tools in the areas of fish population analysis and fish (product) traceability as well as for policy related monitoring, control, surveillance and enforcement in the fisheries sector. An EU 7th FP project.
Project duration: 2010 - 2013

Focusing on two marine fish species of major commercial interest, common sole (Solea solea) and Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua), this study aims at building a basis for aquaculture management of marine fish for restocking purposes of wild population.
Project period: 2002 - 2006

The first major step in the development of a comprehensive suite of new DNA markers for the forensic identification of caviar products in trade within the EU. Workshop organised and hosted by EC with help of CITES, TRAFFIC and WWF.
Project period: 2002 - 2006

Provides molecular tools in support of traceability and anchovy product authentication, which can efficiently be applied to unambiguously determine even closely related fish species in processed food products labelled "anchovy".
Project period: 2002 - 2005

Analysis performed on Mullus surmuletus specimen sampled from four locations in EU-waters. Analysed genetically, by sequencing parts of the mitochondrial genome and additionally parasite infestation examined and morphological data recorded.
Project period: 2002 - 2004
