ANEMONE (BSB319) – Western Black Sea Cetacean Survey


“Assessing the vulnerability of the Black Sea marine ecosystem to human pressures” (ANEMONE) project has conducted a cetacean survey of the western coasts of Black Sea with its 7-member crew. Covering 600 km in 8 days, the research expedition surveyed cetaceans in the western Black Sea coast of Turkey between Bulgarian border İğneada to Karadeniz Ereğli.

The expedition was conducted to obtain accurate scientific data on the abundance and distribution of cetaceans in the Black Sea.
