On 3 April 2024, an interesting event will take place at the Klimahaus in Bremerhaven. Seven scientists from renowned research institutes will be a "living" part of the exciting exhibition at the Klimahaus. And we from the Institute of Sea Fisheries are part of it!

We look forward to talking to you about our research!

While the laboratories were still being set up, we were ready to "cast off"! - this time with the research vessel RV DANA from Denmark.
