ca 2 months (March 2012 – May 2012)
Department of Fisheries and Marine Research (Republic of Cyprus)
In March of 2012 the DFMR of the Ministry of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Environment trusted MER with the task of identifying macrofauna samples collected from 200 m depth, 6 km offshore from the city of Larnaca. MER’s benthic taxonomist identified the macrofauna samples where possible to the species level and submitted a report to the DFMR soon after.
