CCMAR é o único parceiro português em dois projetos europeus de Aquacultura
O Centro de Ciências do Mar (CCMAR) é parceiro em dois grandes projetos, financiados pela União Europeia, através de fundos H2020, o PerformFISH e o MedAID. Ambos os projetos serão desenvolvidos por equipas do CCMAR, durante os próximos anos.
21st International Symposium on Microencapsulation
INSCREVA-SE JÁ no 21st International Symposium on Microencapsulation (27 - 29 Setembro 2017), Gambelas Campus (Faro).
1ª Conferência de Biologia Marinha dos Países de Língua Portuguesa: Uma ponte entre mares
Um encontro para investigadores e interessados em Biologia Marinha, totalmente em língua portuguesa.
Peixes usam sinais químicos na urina para resolver disputas e excitar rivais
Num estudo recentemente publicado na revista Scientific Reports, um grupo de investigadores do Centro de Ciências do Mar, dá conta de que o peixe tilápia moçambicana usa estes sinais para reduzir a violência nos combates.
Bem-vindos!
O CCMAR recebeu ontem a visita dos novos alunos de Biologia e Biologia Marinha (2017/2018). Mostrámos os nossos laboratórios, o nosso Centro de Mergulho Científico e demos as boas-vindas aos caloiros que este ano ingressaram na UAlg.
