Using biomarkers, a multidisciplinary team of scientists was able to collect palaeoceanographic data from the Bransfield Strait, one of the Antarctic areas most affected by climate change.
In recent years and in an accelerated way, the Western Antarctic Peninsula has suffered several variations in its temperature. According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the Southern Ocean has largely absorbed the atmospheric heat generated by anthropogenic activity, the analysis of this phenomenon and how it is affecting the biodiversity present in the place is essential.
To understand the impact of environmental variables in the Southern Ocean, a multidisciplinary team of researchers carried out a long history of paleoceanographic information in the Bransfield Strait, located between the Antarctic Peninsula and the South Shetland Islands.

Many Scottish fishermen have stopped exports to European Union markets after the post-Brexit bureaucracy destroyed the system that used to put fresh prawns and scallops in French stores just over a day after they were harvested, according to newspaper The Globe and Mail.
Fish exporters say their businesses could become unviable after the introduction of health certificates, customs declarations and other formalities added days to their delivery times and hundreds of pounds to the cost of each load.
The business owners said they had tried to send small deliveries to France and Spain to test the new systems this week, but it took them five hours to obtain a health certificate in Scotland, a document that is required to apply for other customs formalities.

The catch limitations for the Canary Islands fleet are of concern to the islands' fishing sector. The situation worries since 35 pole-and-line tuna vessels have assigned 2,328 tonnes for this year. The artisanal fleet, which has included vessels that can only fish tuna, have given it 236,258 kilos: "It is a tactic that was done with good intention, but it has gone wrong and there are many families affected," says the president of IslaTuna
The year of the start of the coronavirus pandemic exposed Canarian professional fishing to subsist by selling their products at low prices. In 2021, the scenario for one of the activities considered essential does not improve and is surrounded by uncertainty.
