To safeguard this, the association has started over the years a series of projects to promote scientific research, dissemination, awareness raising and enhancement of marine environmental heritage. The marine life somehow also affecting the human life since we need the animals and plants to live, to use it as our source of food. ROVs are fully equipped with cameras and sampling equipment which allows researchers to see and control everything the vehicle does. The history of marine biology can be traced as far back as 1200 BC when the Phoenicians and the Greeks began ocean voyages using celestial navigation. These voyages further cleared the way for modern marine biology by building a base of knowledge about marine biology. About 850 animal and more than 500 plant species live in the Caspian. “First study on the presence and distribution of Tursiops truncatus, according to environmental parameters, in the National Park of the Tuscan Archipelago” by Luca Valente The objective of the monitoring activity is to reach a more accurate population estimate and to verify its trend over the years; In this way it will be possible to understand whether it is a closed or open population for migration, also comparing the neighboring catalogs to the study area and bringing to light any common individuals. This allowed marine biologists to explore depths people once thought never existed. The Polynesians were among the first to go out and explore the mysteries of the ocean and marine life. He spent much of his time from 1831 to 1836 on the voyage of HMS Beagle collecting and studying specimens from a variety of marine organisms. They ventured outside the Mediterranean to the Atlantic Ocean with their knowledge of tides, currents and seasonal changes. [14], This era of marine exploration came to a close with the first and second round-the-world voyages of the Danish Galathea expeditions and Atlantic voyages by the USS Albatross, the first research vessel purpose built for marine research. Brown "This historical monograph is one of a series of active duty and Reserve regimental histories. It is important to take into account the fact that given the high density of T. truncatus in the study area, this would be a strategic area, especially considering the presence of the national park inside it. Below are the projects that are being implemented and are being implemented: An eco-ethological study aimed at the protection of cetaceans, in particular the Tursiops truncatus, of Central Dalmatia (Croatia). Home / Identification and Life History of Marine Mammals. “Evaluation of presence and distribution of Tursiops truncatus in the stretch of sea between the islands of Dugi Otok and Hvar (Central Croatia)” by Elena Zanella, “Evaluation of the home range of Tursiops truncatus in the North-Central Adriatic: comparison of four populations (Italy, Slovenia, Northern Croatia and Central Croatia), by Antonio Proietto, “The Backdrops and the Bentonite Component of the Kornati Islands (Croatia): First Survey by Visual Census” by Laura Ribero, “First study on the presence and distribution of Tursiops truncatus, according to environmental parameters, in the National Park of the Tuscan Archipelago” by Luca Valente, “Aquaculture: a new interaction site with Tursiops truncatus” by Marta Franchino, “Application of Europhlukes software in photo-identification and matching techniques with digital images of Tursiops truncatus” by Silvia Gremo, “First estimate of the abundance and distribution of Tursiops truncatus population in the national park of the Kornati Islands (Croatia)” by Michela Cogo. Learn about how light is used in the ocean. “First estimate of the abundance and distribution of Tursiops truncatus population in the national park of the Kornati Islands (Croatia)” by Michela Cogo. Cook's explorations influenced many others and led to a number of scientists examining marine life more closely. [20] Submersibles were built like small submarines with the purpose of taking marine scientists to deeper depths of the ocean while protecting them from increasing atmospheric pressures that cause complications deep under water. With this type of scientific ecotourism, Marine Life has proposed a new way of living the sea, closer to its true nature and essence, not stopping at the surface, but discovering the most intimate secrets.
