The CriMA project, at full sail

05/05/2020

The CriMa project (“Scientific and social initiative to investigate the trade-offs between exploitation and conservation of sensitive marine habitats: Crinoids and Maërl bottoms”), is going at full sail.

The project is carried out by researchers from the Institute of Marine Sciences (CSIC) and the SeaHealth research group of the University of Girona (UdG). Coordination: Dr. Montserrat Demestre (ICM-CSIC) and Dr Josep Lloret (UdG).  

The CriMa project (Reference RTI2018–095770-B-100) is funded by the Spanish Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities, and will carry out pioneering research on two of the most emblematic and fragile benthic habitats in the Mediterranean, and at the same time most impacted by fishing: crinoid beds and maërl bottoms.

CriMa will evaluate the Good Environmental Status (GES) of the crinoid and maërl habitats to advance in the recovery of their biodiversity and their health, and will identify the ecosystem goods and services that these habitats provide us in the form of healthy foods rich in omega 3 fatty acids.
