The CPR Survey's marine monitoring programme has been collecting
data from the North Atlantic and the North Sea on the ecology and
biogeography of plankton since 1931.
The unique marine biological dataset provides a wide range of
environmental and climatic indicators and is used by marine
scientists and policy makers to address marine environmental
management issues such as harmful algal blooms, pollution, climate
change and fisheries.
"It’s truly our pleasure to be “a part of science”. The world’s oceans are an integral component of the world economy and the global climate. Thank you, the Sir Alister Hardy Foundation for monitoring these critical changes. "
SAHFOS is based in Plymouth, UK, and cooperates with sister CPR
surveys around the globe.
