The SEA-UNICORN network includes scientists from a wide variety of disciplines who use various methods to describe the ecology of marine species and who are committed to integrating MFC within conservation and management decision-making.

 

This COST Action gathers more than 180 participants from research organizations in the 38 European COST Member Countries. Their expertise covers the full array of marine ecosystems and resources found in European and adjacent seas. The participation of three Near-Neighbor Countries (Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia) and three COST International Partner countries (Australia, South Africa and USA) adds valuable knowledge on other species, habitat types and ecoregions.

 

Thus, the SEA-UNICORN consortium gathers multidisciplinary knowledge on MFC in almost all oceans and seas, and for all types of marine taxa (including invasive species and organisms living at the land-sea interface). Members also have valuable expertise in connectivity theory, ecosystem modelling and conservation science and include marine stakeholders with solid experience in marine and coastal policies and management.
