In framework of the cooperation between Archipelagos Institute and the Biology Department of the University of Essex, UK, the 6th round of sampling was completed in coastal zones which were affected by the oil slick of the Agia Zoni II shipwreck last September, in the area off Athens.
This research is being carried out with the support of the @NERC: Natural Environment Research Council, UK. Sampling started few days after the shipwreck and is repeated monthly aiming to assess both the toxicological content of common species of seafood from this area, but also to assess the overall condition of the coastal habitats through the use of various types of sensors.
We would like to thank the Salamina’s Environmental Association for their close cooperation on this project since the day of the sinking of Agia Zoni II
