José Xavier, marine biologist and researcher at the Centre of Marine Sciences is participating for the 6th time in a scientific campaign in Antarctica. As a result of this expedition, at 60 degrees south is issued the Polar Science blog; in it you can follow all his scientific activity, getting to know better the work of this polar scientist.

The Research Group “Biogeography, Ecology and Evolution” is participating since January in the European project "Shifting: Marine phylogeographic Structuring during climate change: the signature of leading and rear edge of range shifting populations" integrated in MarinERA pilot call for international research projects on Regional Drivers of Ecosystem Change: Description, Modeling and Prediction co-financed by FCT.

Between 2006 and 2008 the Coastal Research Centre of Marine Sciences conducted a study about the recreational fisheries in Portugal south coast (Sportfish).

The Centre of Marine Sciences is one of the partners of the European Project Lifecycle, which aims to improve biological knowledge on the more important fish species cultivated in Europe, as to improve their production and quality.

Recently published, the new book "Feeding and Digestive Functions in Fishes”, has contributions from three of the CCMAR researchers: Luís Conceição, Sofia Morais and Maria Teresa Dinis.

Rodrigo Costa was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, has a degree in Biological Sciences with specialization in Ecology at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ). He obtained his MSc degree at the Laboratory of Microbial Ecology and Taxonomy of UFRJ together with the Biologische Bundesanstalt f

David Gonçalves has a MSc degree in Biology by the Faculty of Sciences, University of Lisbon and a PhD in Eco-physiology, by the same institution. He carried out his post-doctoral studies in ISPA, focusing on the neuroendocrine regulation of fish reproductive behaviour. Nowadays is one of the new CCMAR members.

A new book, released in July 2008, by Science Publishers, dedicated to the physiology of fish larvae has two articles written by CCMAR researchers.
