In the Chukchi Sea for the first time in the last 30 years, marine flora and fauna studies will be conducted

ChukotTINRO will take part in large hydrobiological studies in the Chukchi Sea. The expedition is organized by the Pacific Research Fisheries Center in July-August of the current year. From Chukotka in the study of marine flora and fauna will take part Deputy Director for Science ChukotTINRO Sergei Zagrebelny.

- Such studies have not been carried out on the territory of the Chukchi Sea for over 30 years. During this time, the living conditions of animals have changed significantly: there was a warming, the movement of pack ice, the state and number of marine hydrobionts (algae, molluscs, crustaceans, fish) changed, - Sergey Zagrebelny explained.

He noted that the main task of the expedition is to collect information on the current state of the marine world. This work will be carried out within a month. Further processing of all data will take about six months.

We add that in the northern part of the continental shelf of the Chukchi Sea this year engineering and geological studies will take place. They will be organized by the Rosneft company in August-September. The research vessel will be attended by scientists from TINRO, including from Chukotka. According to Sergei Zagrebelny, they will observe how the work affects the distribution of marine mammals, including whales, seals, walruses and birds.

Currently, ChukotTINRO is working to find candidates for the expedition.
