Biocoenosis monitoring in marine and transitional environments

Mapping seabed biocoenosis (oceanic posidonia, coralligenous species, invasive species, etc.)

Carried out via Multibeam sonar systems with DGPS positioning, verified at control points through diving or ROV imaging.

Benthic population survey

When sampling sediments, waters and fyto-coenosis (oceanic posidonia, macrofytes, algae) we carry out chemical analysis of the zoobenthos and fythobenthos aimed at the production of thematic maps, application of dataset intelligence (NATURA 2000 network, LITA ASPIM, etc.), and environmental quality indices (M-AMBI, PREI, etc.).

Fish population survey

Carried out with divers or ROV imaging via wire-controlled cameras with DGPS positioning and ultra-short SCOUT basis.
