Congratulations João Monteiro, a Ph.D. student focusing on the fisheries biology of Carcinus maenas, also known as the shore crab, a very abundant species in most lagoon and estuarine Portuguese systems.
João’s goal is to determine the maturity size of this species, and then recommend a minimum landing size to law-makers, who will then enforce to commercial fisheries.
This process included participating in the ICYMARE conference in Germany, so we were delighted to fund João’s trip with 300 euros.
