Success for COMMON SENSE: Marine Sensor Demonstration a Significant Achievement
The EC-funded COMMON SENSE project held its final event in Barcelona on the 27 January 2017, attended by project partners and important stakeholders involved in European marine monitoring. The meeting was held in the facilities of Fundació Navegació Oceànica Barcelona (FNOB), a partner in the COMMON SENSE project.
The full-day meeting provided in-depth context on the challenges and importance of improving methods and available technology to monitor and protect our marine waters. Presentations on the specific results generated by COMMON SENSE preceded a live demonstration of the marine monitoring sensors generated by the project. 
Sensors developed by the COMMON SENSE project can contribute towards increasing the availability of standardised data on: eutrophication; concentrations of heavy metals; micro plastic fraction within marine litter; underwater noise; and other parameters such as temperature, pH, pCO2 and pressure. These cost-effective sensors directly respond to current marine monitoring challenges and will be a key tool for EU Member States in meeting their Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD) requirements and achieving Good Environmental Status (GES) of their marine territories.
Sergio Martinez, COMMON SENSE Scientific Coordinator, said: “Being able to validate what the COMMON SENSE project has achieved through a live demonstration was a momentous occasion for me as coordinator, but also for all the partners. Not only has COMMON SENSE shown that marine sensors can be developed that are cheaper, smaller and more user friendly than currently available sensors; they are also interoperable using the COMMON SENSE smart sensor unit and common web platform. This means the date provided by the sensors can be made available online in real time regardless of the platform used to host the sensors; buoy, pier, even racing yachts.”

The COMMON SENSE partners have put in significant effort over the past forty months to develop prototypes for innovative, next generation sensing technologies that will contribute to the implementation of the MSFD and therefore support the protection of the marine environment in Europe.
Prior to the COMMON SENSE final event, partners involved in sensor development spent the week in Barcelona testing and deploying their sensors in preparation for the demonstration. Within the COMMON SENSE project considerable focus was on deployment and testing, with partners rigorously testing all hardware developed to ensure that the sensors’ performance is not inhibited by even the most changeable and challenging conditions. COMMON SENSE sensors underwent field testing in the Mediterranean, North, Norwegian, Baltic and Arctic seas.

ARRAINA Project Comes to a Successful Close
The EU-funded ARRAINA (Advanced Research Initiatives for Nutrition & Aquaculture) project comes to a close after five years of scientific advances and significant research on the development of tools required to measure and predict the effects of alternative feeds on fish metabolism and health.
Resulting in significant progress towards defining the nutritional requirements for the five main European farmed fish species, Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar), rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss), sea bream (Sparus aurata), seabass (Dicentrarchus labrax) and common carp (Cyprinus carpio).
The key results from the ARRAINA project can be found on the project website, http://www.aquatt.ie/index.php?subid=1931&option=com_acymailing&ctrl=url&urlid=41&mailid=188
, in several different formats developed to ensure the transfer of knowledge from this important project to different stakeholder groups.
These resources include:
• http://www.aquatt.ie/index.php?subid=1931&option=com_acymailing&ctrl=url&urlid=1691&mailid=188;http://www.aquatt.ie/index.php?subid=1931&option=com_acymailing&ctrl=url&urlid=1692&mailid=188;http://www.aquatt.ie/index.php?subid=1931&option=com_acymailing&ctrl=url&urlid=1693&mailid=188;http://www.aquatt.ie/index.php?subid=1931&option=com_acymailing&ctrl=url&urlid=1694&mailid=188; and,
• http://www.aquatt.ie/index.php?subid=1931&option=com_acymailing&ctrl=url&urlid=1695&mailid=188.

By jointly involving researchers and the key stakeholders in the aquaculture industry in Europe (feed producers, actors of the food supply chain, farmers, consumers and policy makers) in the design and assessment of these alternative feeds, the ARRAINA project has contributed towards the adoption and implementation of these innovative sustainable feeds. Which could improve the competitiveness, employment, health and environment of the EU and candidate countries.
The ARRAINA website (http://www.aquatt.ie/index.php?subid=1931&option=com_acymailing&ctrl=url&urlid=41&mailid=188) provides further information on all other aspects of the ARRAINA project including specific research methods and available results.

Crab Watch!
Crab Watch is a citizen science initiative developed as part of the EU-funded Sea Change Project. The initiative will explore how citizen science can be used as a tool for increasing ocean literacy, as well as collecting valuable scientific data. Crab Watch data will enhance our knowledge of the changing distribution of native and non-native crabs, as well as supporting environmental management. Anyone finding a crab on the shore for the first time will experience a sense of excitement and wonder (and maybe a bit of trepidation if it is a particularly large one!).
The goal of Crab Watch is to harness this enthusiasm to encourage participation in this citizen science scheme. Crabs are charismatic, and with a little guidance can be found around Europe in all marine and some freshwater habitats. They have great commercial and cultural significance in many countries, making them a popular subject for art and folklore. They are also affected by human activities, including warming seas, invasive species and overexploitation, making them an ideal subject to help demonstrate how humans and the ocean are inextricably linked.
Several species of non-native crab, in particular the Asian shore crab (Hemigrapsus sanguineus), brush-clawed crab (Hemigrapsus takanoi), sally light-foot crab (Percnon gibbesi) and Chinese mitten crab (Eriochier sinensis) are present in multiple European countries. There is evidence to suggest that the Asian shore crab in particular is likely to negatively impact populations of the native European shore crab (Carcinus maenas). Participation in the project aims to raise awareness of the impact of non-native species and encourage people to think more about marine biosecurity.
‘Crabbing’ is a popular past-time in the UK and it is hoped that Crab Watch will encourage other European residents to take up this hobby with the added incentive of contributing to science. Free resources will promote crab welfare and environmental good practice among ‘crabbers’ old and new. By providing encouragement to visit the sea and interact with marine creatures in a meaningful way, the scheme will encourage people to think positively about the marine environment and participants will be encouraged to explore and learn about the great diversity of life found in the ocean.
The coastlines of Europe range from the negligible tides and sandy shores of the Mediterranean to some of the highest tidal ranges in the world on the rocky Atlantic coasts. To account for this variation, the scheme includes three key elements, each designed to maximise engagement and cater for people with different levels of interest and in different geographical areas.
Ad-hoc recording of crabs using a specially developed app will form the core of the initiative. More in-depth and structured survey protocols have been developed for use in the intertidal zone and from the shore in areas where intertidal surveys are not possible. These methods include the crab-friendly mark and recapture method using lipstick tagging to avoid unnecessary retention of live animals. 
Data collected will be checked and validated before being passed to relevant marine and wildlife data hubs (e.g. EUROBIS) where they will be freely accessible. Crab Watch surveys have been taking place around Europe to test protocols and draft resources as well as to collect feedback from different audiences. The scheme will be more widely launched for resource and system testing in March 2017 with a full launch in June.
If you are interested in getting involved with Crab Watch, in particular promoting the project or running your own Crab Watch survey events, contact Jack Sewell (mailto:[log in to unmask]).

Sea Change Helps Students Sail the World
Many people are unaware of the ocean’s influence on us and our influence on the ocean. In short, they lack a sense of what has come to be known as “Ocean Literacy”. To address this issue, the EU-funded Sea Change project aims to raise European citizens’ awareness of the links between ocean and human health and to empower us to take direct and sustainable action towards a healthy ocean. In December 2016, Sea Change became involved in Educational Passages - a demonstration of life on the high seas which alloweds students to send miniature sailing boats (‘miniboats’) out into the Atlantic and to track their progress online.
The Atlantic Miniboat Regatta “Around the Atlantic - Our Shared Resource” is a coordinated effort between Educational Passages, the Atlantic Ocean Research Alliance (AORA) and other professional marine organisations and institutions in support of 22 elementary, middle, and high schools from the eight countries where students took part. Students can track their minboats, which are powered solely by wind and ocean currents, on a transatlantic course using the Educational Passages website. Educators can take advantage of the on-site teaching tools addressing Earth and ocean science, meteorology, naval architecture and other cultural topics.
You can see the list of boats on the Educational Passages website: http://www.aquatt.ie/index.php?subid=1931&option=com_acymailing&ctrl=url&urlid=1684&mailid=188
 and click on an individual boat to see its progress: http://www.aquatt.ie/index.php?subid=1931&option=com_acymailing&ctrl=url&urlid=1685&mailid=188

Most of the miniboats are expected to follow historic sailing routes.Boats launched from America will take the northern route “up and east” towards Europe. Boats launched from Europe will sail “south and west” into the Caribbean and (hopefully) continue on to South America. Most miniboats will make landfall several times on their way.
Using GPS position reports, participants are able to watch their boat’s progress and coordinate recovery efforts by identifying partner schools as the miniboats approach coasts before they are threatened by obstacles. Working closely with the Sea Change Project, rescued miniboats will be taken to local partner schools where learning and international relations ensue. Once recovered, arrangements will be made for miniboat repairs and re-launching, with messages and other items added to the watertight compartment to be discovered at the next site of recovery. Whether recovered or not, it is expected that most miniboats will eventually sail back home to their launching point. It is through this very practical connection between coastal countries that the programme promotes understanding of the Atlantic Ocean as a shared resource through the medium of ocean literacy.
The goals of the “Around the Atlantic – Our Shared Resource” Regatta are threefold: 1) to provide STEM learning opportunities to students of all ages as their sailing miniboats circle the Atlantic, 2) to engage in collaborative learning through international cultural experiences and 3) to increase student and citizen understanding of the value of the Atlantic as a shared resource. Educational Partnership partners include the School of Ocean Technology, Newfoundland; Flanders Marine Institute, Belgium; Maine Maritime Academy; University of Maine, Marine Science School; The College of Exploration, Virginia; PLOCAN Platform Ocean Research Center in Canarias; Washington College, Maryland; Evolution Sails; and Ships of Opportunity.

Gull Decline on Scottish Island Linked to Decline in Fishing Discards 
Research published in the British Trust for Ornithology (BTO) journal Bird Study, looked at the breeding populations of three species of large gull on the Hebridean island of Canna, and the relationship between these gull populations and the fall in the quantity of fish landed in the nearby harbour of Mallaig. Researchers said that although there were large changes over recent decades, it could be that the gull populations on Canna were returning to more normal levels.

 Unexpected Result: Ocean Acidification Can Promote Shell Formation 
Dutch and Japanese scientists were surprised to discover that some tiny unicellular shellfish make better shells in an acidic environment. Researchers from the NIOZ (Royal Dutch Institute for Sea Research) and JAMSTEC (Japanese Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology) found in their experiments that foraminifera could regulated acidity at the micro level. These single-celled foraminifera shellfish occur in huge numbers in the oceans. The results of the study are published in ‘Nature Communications’.

 Seafood: Investigation into EU Consumers' Attitudes Shows Sustainable Supply is Essential 
A new Eurobarometer survey on EU consumer choices regarding fishery and aquaculture products reveals that people in the EU eat seafood quite regularly, although how far people live from the sea plays a role in how often they eat fish. Fish consumption is increasing, with 42% Europeans eating fish/aquaculture products at least once a week at home. This underlines the need to ensure sustainable supply of fish to the EU market.
