Monitoring changes in the surrounding marine area in response to changes in river flows.

Objectives:

1)  Understand and describe the effect of the basin outputs in terms of energy and matter to the coastal zone and marine area
2) Quantify and assess the interaction between abiotic characteristics and biological resources of the study area

Tasks:

Task 1. Study of the spatiotemporal changes in key abiotic features of the area.

Task 2. Study of changes in the abundance, distribution and composition of zooplankton and fish in the broader area using acoustic technology.

Task 3. Correlation of changes in the abundance and distribution of fish and zooplankton with the outflow from the basin.
