Mission Atlantic

Towards the Sustainable Development of the Atlantic Ocean

MISSION ATLANTIC is an EU-funded project that will map and assess the present and future status of Atlantic marine ecosystems under the influence of climate change and exploitation.

By studying the complexity of Atlantic Ocean ecosystems, maritime culture, traditions and sustainable management, MISSION ATLANTIC will contribute to a better and more sustainable future for life on Earth
