Αυτές οι “ΣΥΣΚΕΥΕΣ ΠΡΟΣΤΑΣΙΑΣ ΝΕΑΡΩΝ ΨΑΡΙΩΝ” που τοποθετούνται?

έχω σαν επάγγελμα το κλειδαρά γλυφάδας κλειδαρά αργυρούπολης. Αλλά σαν χόμπι έχω το ψάρεμα και είμαι και λάτρης της τεχνολογίας. Θέλω να μάθω γιατί στη περιοχή της Καλαμάτας καλό νερό υπάρχει ένα μικρό πρόβλημα πλέον απο ψάρια και θέλω να δω αν μπούμε να βουίσουμε. Είμαι στο σύλλογο τοπικών και μόνο ψαράδων.


Τι ακριβώς είναι οι  “ΣΥΣΚΕΥΕΣ ΠΡΟΣΤΑΣΙΑΣ ΝΕΑΡΩΝ ΨΑΡΙΩΝ”? εμείς διαθέτουμε  GPS Θαλάσσης αλλά είναι όλα gps garmin . Θα θέλαμε να μάθουμε αν κάποια Ελληνική εταιρεία έχει φτιάξει κάποια συσκευή με τη παραπάνω ιδιότητα.

River and coastal zone management system

Development of a system for the integrated river basin and coastal zone management and restoration


1) Creating a user-friendly software for the management and restoration of Sperchios watershed and coastal zone, which incorporates environmentally optimized models and indicators.


Task 1. Requirements analysis and specification for the development of a decision support tool.

Task 2. Development of a software for the integrated river basin and coastal zone management. Experimental operation, validation and optimization.

Basin – coastal zone interactions

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


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


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.

Developing ecological models and indices

Developing and optimizing models and indices to assess the ecological status. Study of interaction between human activities and ecological quality.


1) The creation of a classification system for the hydromorphological quality of the study area
2) Assessment of the impact of human activities and climate on the quality and quantity of water in the study area and the quantification of these interactions
3) Optimization and development of bio-indices for assessing the ecological quality


Task 1. Hydrometeorological and hydrochemical simulation of the basin. Impact analysis of climate scenarios, past changes in land use and water management practices.

Task 2. Development of hydroecological models and optimized indices and statistical correlation with individual hydrological and hydrochemical scenarios. Identification of hydrological and hydrochemical thresholds that significantly alter the biological quality.

In-situ environmental monitoring

In-situ monitoring of the ecological status in the basin and coastal zone.


1)      Assessment of the ecological quality of the under study water bodies and identify problems and structural failures due to existing indicators and hydroecological models
2) Develop an appropriate information infrastructure and expertise, with the aim of optimizing the existing ecological indicators and models.


Task 1. Monitoring hydrological and physicochemical conditions in the basin with in-situ measurements and sampling.

Task 2. Monitoring of biological parameters and habitats in the watershed and coastal zone with field measurements and sampling.

Task 3. Evaluation of the ecological status of water bodies using preexisting ecological indicators
