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.
SAHFOS is based in Plymouth, UK, and cooperates with sister CPR surveys around the globe.
