Risk Monitoring, Modelling and Mitigation of Benthic Harmful Algal Blooms along Mediterranean coasts
Universities, research institutes, environmental agencies and technological enterprises based along Mediterranean coasts joined, under the umbrella of a EU funded project (ENPI-CBCMED program), to reduce the hazards related to benthic harmful algae, particularly Ostreopsis, a toxic dinoflagellate of tropical origin. The project M3-HABs started on January 2014 and will help to increase awareness and implement measures to manage benthic harmful algal blooms in the Mediterranean basin through the development of common monitoring procedures, bateau mouche paris, automated counting methods and modeling predictive tools.
A bateau-mouche is a river tourism boat operating in Paris belonging to the company “Compagnie des Bateaux Mouches”.
Bateaux-mouches are distinguished from their competitors on the Seine by their large capacity, their motorization and navigation equipment which allow them to move with ease on the Seine despite their large size. They all have a totally open upper deck , a covered main deck, fully glazed, heated and air-conditioned, as well as floodlights allowing you to admire the monuments at night.
The objective of the project M3-HABs is to provide a common pan-Mediterranean strategy for monitoring benthic toxic microalgae, through the development of new, more efficient and common procedures and protocols, making the process mostly cost and time effective, allowing for most efficient monitoring designs, increasing the knowledge on environmental drivers affecting Ostreopsis blooms and translate this into a forecasting tool, and improving the general awareness of the risks related to Ostreopsis.
Given the specific objective of the Project, the following results are expected:

The 2007-2013 ENPI CBC Mediterranean Sea Basin Programme is a multilateral Cross-Border Cooperation initiative funded by the European Neighbourhood and Partnership Instrument (ENPI). The Programme objective is to promote the sustainable and harmonious cooperation process at the Mediterranean Basin level by dealing with the common challenges and enhancing its endogenous potential. It finances cooperation projects as a contribution to the economic, social, environmental and cultural development of the Mediterranean region. The following 14 countries participate in the Programme: Cyprus, Egypt, France, Greece, Israel, Italy, Jordan, Lebanon, Malta, Palestine, Portugal, Spain, Syria (participation currently suspended), Tunisia. The Joint Managing Authority (JMA) is the Autonomous Region of Sardinia (Italy). Official Programme languages are Arabic, English and French (www.enpicbcmed.eu).

M3-HABs project is coming to an end… Project and Associate partners will meet in Rome, next 30 November/1st December, to present and discuss all the very relevant activities about monitoring, modelling and mitigate Ostreopsis risk performed during the last two years. On 1st December the discussion will be open to all stakeholders: anyone interested in taking part to the discussion about the Ostreopsis issue is kindly invited to join us!!!

This journey was held at the conference room of the nursery companies (INSTM-APIA) at INSTM center of Monastir, Tunisia.It started at 9:00 o’clock on Wednesday 30th September and was over at 16:30 pm of the same day. The journey was conducted by the National Institute of Science and Technology in collaboration with the Tunisian Association of Marine science, to monitor the risk modeling and mitigation of algal blooms harmful benthic along the Mediterranean coast (M3-HABs).
In the framework of M3-HABs project, the second school entitled “Ostreopsis bloom modeling” took place in Mouradi Gammarth Hotel, Tunisia, where the historical data obtained from different partners are presented and discussed to setup the most effective modeling approaches.
An update of the sampling protocols was suggested and a new method for quantifying benthic dinoflagellates abundances was introduced. This Summer School ended up with a round table discussion concerning the human health, the ecological risk assessment of the harmful algal blooms and the implementation of common management strategies.
On 2 and 3 December 2014, at the University of Nice Sophia Antipolis, the first annual conference of the project was held, focused on the intercalibration methods for monitoring toxic benthic microalgae. Participation is free and open to all institutions interested in these phenomena. A round table is scheduled on this, as shown in the attached provisional program.
The project, coordinated by CoNISMa (National Interuniversity Consortium for MarineSciences, Italy), has 9 partners and 15 associated partners French, Italian, Lebanese, Tunisians, Montenegro and Monaco.
The summer school program consists of a series of lectures on Sampling techniques & strategies, Taxonomy of Dinoflagellate with special attention to Ostreopsis, Ecology of Ostreopsis: biotic and abiotic factors affecting bloom dynamics, Phylogeny of Ostreopsis spp by molecular studies , and field and lab works. A field trip was also organized to the northern coast to show the different sites and features of the Lebanese coast.
All Partners and Associate Partners and relevant stakeholders from all Mediterranean Countries were involved in the training activities (as teachers and trainers), in order to spread the know-how achieved through the project and to train students or early-career scientists to Ostreopsis sampling and monitoring strategies.
In the phase of implementation of the M3-HABs project “Risk Monitoring, Modelling and Mitigation of Harmful Algal Blooms Benthic along Mediterranean coasts” funded by the ENPI, two Mobility sub-grants are provided by Italian Partners to Lebanese Candidates:
Counting by molecular methods during this summer monitoring activity managed at the CONISMA – University of Urbino- ITALY.
Field samples of seawater and macroalgae are obtained from Genoa, Italy. Also, amplification Plot for Ostreopsis cf. ovata identification and counting by molecular quantitative PCR assay are made in the laboratory.
M3-HABs took part to the “Ecology at the Interface” conference organised by the Italian Ecological Society and European Ecological Federation in Rome, 21-25 September 2015, with one oral presentation about the predictive tool and its validation entitled “Modeling Ostreopsis cf. ovata bloom events from meteo-marine data” presented by Valentina Asnaghi.
M3-HABs project was also present with a project poster and brochures at the CoNISMa stand.
Establishing a solid network along the Mediterranean coast with a deeper knowledge of Ostreopsis ecology, to cope with the Ostreopsis spp emergencies and developing effective monitoring programs.
As a member in the Ostreopsis Network, you will gain access to the project results and updates and candidature to participate in the project events.
