IHCantabria with the support of the Regional Government of Cantabria has been carried out since 2005 the monitoring of the coastal waters of Cantabria in accordance with the Water Framework Directive. Here is included the abundance of phytoplankton obtained from field campaigns in the coast and identified in the laboratory. more

Project Data The objective of the project is to support the Government of Cantabria in the implementation of the Water Framework Directive (2000/60/EC). Among other tasks, in 2005 the "Coastline Quality Network of Cantabria" was launched, within which an analysis of the quality of water, sediments and certain biological indicators is carried out, in the transitional and coastal water masses of Cantabria. The methodology used to cell counting was Utermohl method (Utermohl, 1958).
