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!

New on Board: Juan Capaz

 

Juan Capaz joined CCMAR on July 2017 to work at the Ramalhete Marine Station.
Welcome on board Juan!

 

Tell us a bit about the work you’ll be doing at CCMAR.
Maintenance, growth and reproduction of different marine species in their different development stages for aquaculture scientific research, including upkeeping of equipment, solving technical issues, preparation and provision of feeds, handling, organisms transfer and transport between tanks or facilities. Monitoring sanitary and experimental conditions to assure research station best performance.

What were you doing before you joined us?
After Marine Biology BSc and Aquaculture and Fisheries MSc, I worked at CCMAR´s FBHRG group, mostly in European cuttlefish (Sepia officinalis) projects: Reproduction improvement in captivity (SEPIABREED) and technological development of aquaculture production, pellets and zoo-technical issues (SEPIATECH). Not forgetting some joint studies with several international researchers in related matters.

What interests and hobbies do you enjoy when you are not doing science?
Outside work, I appreciate my friends company. Going to cinema, a pc game or tv series, even a night out is enough to chill out and relax. Going to the gym helps me maintaining physical and mental health, but archery practice focus my concentration. I enjoy walks in natural surroundings or the beach, swimming or snorkeling. Sport fishing is my favorite hobby, as well as aquarism and fishkeeping.
