Abstract:
When striving for sustainable exploitation of marine resources, it is very important to have a well-supported evaluation of the environmental quality as well as the quality of the biological marine products. ILVO uses an integrated approach for evaluation. Using biological, toxicological and chemical tests, we study the human effect on the marine environment (sand and gravel extraction, dumping of dredging material, building windmills, fisheries, introduction of exotic species) and different types of pollution (pollutants, garbage) on marine life. We also study the genetic and (bio)chemical quality, freshness and authenticity by developing analyses and applying them to fish and shellfish. This research includes continual, long-term monitoring as well as specific research projects.
