Bottom trawling operations were carried out in September 2019 in the two marine areas in front of Sakarya and Yeşilırmak Rivers at the Turkish Black Sea coast. After the trawling operations the biota samples were collected and classified by the TUBITAK and Sinop University experts.
The biota samples will be analyzed for their contaminants content and will be assessed for T2 (Study of River – Black Sea interactions) and T3 (Seafood safety) Work Packages in the ANEMONE Project. During the same field work, collection and classification of marine litters at the beaches near Sakarya and Yesilirmak Rivers were carried out.
