Spotlight on Professor Barbara Block

    Prof. Block has been working alongside our Apex Predator Lab for a couple of years now, and we are excited to host her in our Mediterranean Sea!

    In our upcoming conference she will present her decades-long research on Bluefin Tuna, as the leading researcher in her field for many years. Here is a link to her lab at Hopkins Marine Research Station (Stanford University).

    We will be tagging with her outside of the conference when the sea permits us.

    Save the date! 2nd International Conference

    The Morris Kahn Marine Research Station is proud to host a 2-day conference, overlooking the Mediterranean. The conservation of the eastern Mediterranean Sea is of utmost importance and a key concern of the station. Our researchers strive to consistently explore and monitor our corner of the Med, in order to provide high-resolution baseline data which decision makers can translate into real measures to preserve the biodiversity and functions. 

    A CCR expedition to Bermuda

    And our journey continues… Previously, we introduced the research pair of Dr. Tali Mass from the University of Haifa in Israel and Dr. Gretchen Goodbody-Gringley from the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences (BIOS), while they were collecting larvae in the gulf of Aqaba in March of this year. Now they are together again, collecting larvae in the same depths and latitude, but in Bermuda, an isolated island in the western Atlantic Ocean.

    International research collaboration

    Last week, divers of the Morris Kahn Marine Research Station, Leon H. Charney School of Marine Sciences, University of Haifa, were proud to support an international collaboration of scientists from Israel and Bermuda, all of whom are certified AAUS CCR divers. The operation took place at the Interuniversity Institute for marine sciences in Eilat, Israel, and examined different aspects of global climate change on impacted coral reefs.
