4th Follow-up Meeting
Held on the 27th of January of 2023, the team reviewed the advance of the project and made a short overview of the ongoing activities and actions in progress. The country for the next Meeting with NEEMO was selected and a next supervision meeting in March was scheduled.
Online 3rd Technical Meeting
Held in the 19th of January of 2023, the team reviewed the advance of the project and discussed actions, progress, and deliverables. The meeting focused on the discussion and identification of optimal sites to perform conservation actions, which are of high importance to reach successful reintroductions/reinforcements in Pinna nobilis populations. Two kinds of situations for P. nobilis will be taken into account in this action, sanctuary areas (free of pathogen), and areas in the Mediterranean open sea (ideal for resistants).
First presencial meeting: Official presentation of the LIFE PINNARCA Project
The official presentation and press meeting of LIFE PINNARCA Project (LIFE 20-NAT/ES/001265) was held on the 28th of April of 2022 in Valencia (Spain). The Institute for Research in Environment and Marine Science of the Catholic University of Valencia (IMEDMAR-UCV) hosted the meeting in the Veles i Vents building in Valencia.
The overall goal of the project is to prevent the extinction of the Mediterranean fan mussel (Pinna nobilis) in the short-to-medium term. The project will carry out urgent measures within the framework of an international collaborative consortium of experts to enable the application of coherent trans-boundary measures.
