Unlocking the archive

Using scale and otolith chronologies to resolve climate impacts

The Archive project (2016-2021) is a collaboration with the Marine Institute, funded under the Marine Research Programme by the Irish Government. An aim of the project is to consolidate national collections of scales, otoliths, associated images and data into a single biochronology repository, thus maximising the use of the archive by researchers. Time series of scale/otolith growth and chemical composition are being analysed within the project to investigate how migratory fish respond to environmental change.
