South and Tropical Atlantic climate-based marine ecosystem prediction for sustainable management (TRIATLAS)

In the TRIATLAS project, scientists are investigating the state of the ecosystems of the tropical Atlantic and the South Atlantic.

Coastal Ecosystem Monitoring in Cape Verde (CEM-CV)

Artisanal fisheries contribute importantly to nutrition in the African archipelagic state of Cape Verde.

GoJelly – a gelatinous solution to plastic pollution

The GoJelly project is looking for ways to use jellyfish as a source of innovative solutions to combat marine pollution.

Kieler Marktplatz

The event series Kieler Markplatz (Kiel Market Place) supports the interaction of science, politics and business on current topics like green hydrogen from wind power, sustainable aquaculture, microplastic or munitions in German marine waters.

Adaptation of the Western Baltic Coastal Fishery to Climate Change (balt_ADAPT)

The project is dedicated to the adaptation of coastal fishery in the Western Baltic Sea to climate change.

Pre-site survey for an amphibious drilling project for the palaeo-reconstruction of the Laurentian Ice Sheet in Labrador, Canada

Round Table Marine Science Schleswig-Holstein

The Round Table is intended to ensure a regular exchange between science and administration on current topics in marine science.

Living Lab Eckernförder Bucht 2030

Together with various stakeholders, the project partners want to develop perspectives for a sustainable utilisation of the Eckernförde Bucht. By using the methods of a living lab, the ecological relationships in the bay will be investigated and the protection of marine habitats will be expanded.


Climate change is causing redistributions of marine fish species. Based on genetic studies and bioeconomic models, proposals are being developed on how fisheries management can respond.

RETAKE (CO2-removal through marine alkalinity enhancement: potential, benefits, risks).

The project examines whether and under which circumstances marine alkalinity enhancement can be a viable process to remove CO2 from the atmosphere, storing it safely in the ocean. Similarly, impacts on fish stocks, fisheries, and food security will be examined.
