A new European Marine Board (EMB) Future Science Brief No. 3 entitled “Strengthening Europe’s Capability in Biological Ocean Observations” has been published.
It calls for an increase in the relevance of current and future European biological ocean observation capacity to strengthen global efforts towards our understanding of the ocean and enhance marine biodiversity conservation, for maintaining a healthy ocean for healthy societies.

The publication can be downloaded from the EMB website, and a factsheet for policy makers can be found here.

The publication is an official output of the European Marine Board, a strategic pan-European Forum with members including key marine research performing institutes, funding agencies and university consortia.
