The main objective of the Predator-Prey Interaction in the Southern Ocean research project is to establish a long-term database of distribution and abundance estimates for krill-dependent predators in the key fishing grounds along the western Antarctic Peninsula. It also focussed on public talks to onboard guests so they can learn the basics for quantifying animal abundance and habitat use understanding the importance of biodiversity protection and how this can be achieved by applying methods for observing marine predators and overlapping its density with krill fisheries.Description

Monica Arso Civil: Update on the harbour seal decline project (8/7/2019)

In the last decade harbour seal numbers on the east coast of Scotland and in the Northern Islands have declined by up to 85%. In contrast, numbers in West Scotland and the Western Isles have remained stable or increased. The Harbour Seal Decline Project, led by a research team at the Sea Mammal Research Unit, was commissioned by the Scottish Government to address possible reasons behind the decline. The main tasks are to estimate the vital rates (pregnancy, birth and death) of seals in regions with contrasting population trajectories, and to investigate the drivers for any changes in these population vital rates. I will be presenting a summary of initial findings and an update on how the field season is going in Orkney this summer. Description
