Proliferações Nocivas de Algas: regulação, impactos e previsão

Portugal
Training Center

As proliferações nocivas de algas (Harmful Algal Blooms, HABs) apresentam múltiplos impactos negativos na exploração de recursos marinhos vivos, outras atividades socioeconómicas, saúde pública e dinamica dos ecossistemas marinhos. O aumento da intensidade e frequência destes eventos exige a aplicação de medidas de gestão ambiental adequadas, incluindo a previsão de HAB e eventual mitigação dos seus efeitos. Este curso abrange tópicos relevantes na área da fisiologia e ecologia de organismos formadores de HAB em ecossistemas marinhos, incluindo traços funcionais, forçadores ambientais, padrões de distribuição e tendências de evolução temporal.

IOC/OTGA/HAB: Training Course and Identification Qualification in Harmful Marine Microalgae 2023

Hab
Training Center

Since 1993 the IOC has conducted training courses on harmful microalgae. The purpose has been to improve the taxonomic and identification skills of the participants for research purposes and for practical monitoring of harmful algal blooms.

From 2006 the IOC training in HAB identification has been offered within a new framework which gives accreditation. The present course includes now a practical exam at the end of the course with an IOC Certificate of Proficiency in Identification of Harmful Algae issued to participants who pass the exam. We know by experience that many of the more than 500 trainees we have had over the years have wished the courses to give accreditation, and in some countries, the IOC courses have become a reference for laboratories to be approved for carrying out regulatory monitoring for harmful microalgae.

The IOC Science and Communication Centre on Harmful Algae, University of Copenhagen, Denmark is organizing the course.

Seaweed diversity: an Ecuadorian perspective (Tropical East Pacific)

Belgium
Training Center

To ensure food and job security, food production systems need to be innovated so that they protect the environment, mitigate climate change and become more climate-resilient. This is an opportunity for seaweed culture which captures nutrients and CO2 and does not need freshwater or fertilizers. In Ecuador, edible seaweed is being produced by small farmers, but a sustainable biomass valorization strategy is missing. Moreover, a good knowledge of the existing seaweed species is still lacking.

This course offers an introduction to the diversity, taxonomy and biogeography of the seaweeds of the Tropical East Pacific (Ecuador), in the framework of the project Seaweed-based innovations for a resilient aquaculture and agriculture (SIRENA funded by VLIR-UOS).
