Macaronesian network for interregional and multidisciplinary knowledge and technology transfer

The MARCET Project (MAC/1.1b/149), which ended in October 2019, was born with the aim of transferring and disseminating cutting-edge science and technology to promote the sustainable development of tourism activity associated with whale watching, by the creation and implementation of the MARCET Network, an interregional and multidisciplinary network that brings together specialized centers in monitoring and health surveillance of cetaceans, as well as operational oceanography, with the aim of integrating, harmonizing and optimizing knowledge, infrastructure and good practices in the region.

Specific Objectives:

  • Objective 1: Analyse the socioeconomic impact of the tourist activity of whale watching and promote its growth and sustainable development.
  • Objective 2: Create spaces for exchange, transfer and reinforcement of capacities that allow the MARCET Network to be consolidated and formalized
