ISTRAZIVANJE MORSKIH SISARA JADRANA
Eksperti iz Drustva prirodnjaka Crne Gore su od pocetka oktobra 2018 sa profesionalnim MMO (posmatraci morskih sisara) i PAM (strucnjaci za pasivni akusticni monitoring) aktivno radili istrazivanje Jadrana . Cilj ovog istrazivanja je prikupljanje podataka o morskim kornjacama i morskim sisarima prateci ACCOBAMS protokol za monitoring morske mega faune.
SURVEY ON MARINE MAMMALS AT THE ADRIATIC SEA
Experts from Natural History Association of Montenegro from the beginning of October 2018 with professional MMO (marine mammal observer) and PAM (passive acoustic monitoring) started a environmental survey in the Adriatic Sea. The aim of his survey is to record marine mammals and marine turtles following ACCOBAMS protocol for the monitoring of marine mega-fauna.
This survey represents a baseline assessment of the existing condition of marine megafauna before a 3D Geophysical survey planned to be carried out offshore Montenegro in November 2018. Likewise, the marine megafauna conditions will be assessed in the same period of 2019, by using the same monitoring techniques and protocols used for the baseline assessment.
During this first period we have already collected valuable data by visual sightseeing and acoustic observation. ..
This survey represents the first of this kind in Montenegro waters: it includes a continuous 20 day sea survey and provide us a good basis for conservation of marine mammals. Montenegro and the South Adriatic in general are still poorly investigated and there are gaps in knowledge of megafauna species distribution and population size.
After this survey we will continue work on monitoring, conservation and education in this field of biology.
