|Consequences of green tides on ichtyofauna|
Context and Issues
Although green tides have seriously impacted eutrophicated coastal areas for decades, their impact on essential coastal habitats for fish early-life stages remains especially poorly known. This 3-year project launched in 2013 is dedicated to this question.
Evaluating the consequences of macroalgal blooms, known as green tides, on ichtyofauna early-life stages, from local to more general impacts in the highly impacted north-western coasts of France.
Estimation at different scales, from individual fish to the ichtyofaunal community, of the consequences of different levels of green algae proliferation from a Before-After-Control-Impact approach based on in-situ surveys and laboratory analysis of individual fish performances (growth, ecotoxicology).
