The Continuous Plankton Recorder towed by vessels worldwide provides vital understanding of our marine environment. Join us to learn how this unique programme helps maintain the health of our oceans

From genes to ecosystems - the Continuous Plankton Recorder (CPR) Survey as a vital tool in understanding our marine environment.

The CPR survey run by the Sir Alister Hardy Foundation for Ocean Science (SAHFOS) in Plymouth is the oldest running, most geographically extensive marine monitoring programme in the world.

Despite being a relatively small organisation, the Survey operates on a global scale and provides unrivalled information on the health of our oceans, used by scientists, policy makers and a multitude of other stakeholders worldwide.

This talk will offer an insight into both the history of and the current research carried out by SAHFOS and encourage you to consider the real value of our oceans.
