Details About the talk

Atuns são atletas oceânicos — rápidos, predadores de longas distâncias cujos hábitos nós apenas começamos a entender. A bióloga marinha Barbara Block equipa atuns com rastreadores (e transponders) que gravam dados inéditos sobre esses lindos, ameaçados peixes e o habitat oceânicos por onde eles se movimentam.

Barbara Block studies how tuna, billfish and sharks move around (and stay warm) in the open ocean. Knowing how these large predators travel through pelagic waters will help us understand their role in the wider ocean ecosystem.
