Renewed agreement with Greenland: DCE to provide increased environmental knowledge in the mineral resource area

DCE – Danish Centre for Environment and Energy, Aarhus University, will boost the knowledge base even more and thereby its expertise in areas where Greenland needs stronger specialised advice in the form of research-based environmental consultancy regarding mineral resources.

Changed hunting seasons have only minor effects on hunters’ harvest size

The hunters’ total number of game bagged is only marginally influenced by changes in hunting season length, even if the season is shortened when used as a population management tool.

Pan-European status of the breeding population of Great Cormorants published

Results from a major survey of breeding numbers of cormorants in Europe have just been published, providing the most complete overview of the breeding distribution and abundance of these fish-eating birds ever compiled.

The map shows the 304 SAMBAH click detector positions. At 140 stations (filled circles) porpoises have been detected on at least one occasion during the two years of data collection, whereas 160 stations (empty circles) had no detections at all. 
At four stations (X) no data was collected as the detectors were repeatedly lost. The detection rates, averaged for all stations in the different countries’ EEZ or parts of the EEZ, are shown in shades of blue.
 In Russian Kaliningrad waters data collection in 9 positions is still on-going. It started in May 2013 and will end in May 2014, i.e. there will be no overlap with the SAMBAH data collection, and it will be one year shorter. So far no detections of porpoises have been made in Russian waters.
