Marine fisheries in the changing environment. What is happening with autochthonic species?
Dr Nedo Vrgoč is head of the Laboratory of Fisheries Science and Management of Pelagic and Demersal Resources. His main aim is to ensure synergy between fisheries scientists, fishermen and policymakers in the common battle for sustainable fisheries.
The Institute of Oceanography and Fisheries was founded in 1930 as the first national scientific institution dedicated to marine research in Croatia. The scientific activity of the Institute has been multidisciplinary from the beginning, encompassing biological, chemical and physical oceanography as well as sedimentology, fishery and mariculture.
Our action for climate change
The Institute has participated in a variety of research that had collected valuable long term data sets, biological, chemical and physical. Those data now play an important role in observing, revealing and predicting the changes in our environment.
