DEVOTES Project releases report on the application of non - invasive biosensors

The EC funded DEVOTES Project (DEVelopment Of innovative Tools for understanding marine biodiversity and assessing good Environmental Status) has published a report on innovative monitoring techniques and the application of non-invasive biosensors.

This report outlines the application of high frequency, non-invasive biosensors (HFNI) to measure biological rhythms and shell growth in bivalves using real time data transfer and analysis. The ultimate aim of this activity within DEVOTES is to determine the potential utility of the method for long-term water quality monitoring, in the context of the Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD).
