Ecosystem modeling is nowadays one of the most important scientific tools that have direct applications for management and conservation of marine ecosystems.
Within this context, the project ECOTRANS aims at studying the trophic relations between different compartments of the pelagic ecosystem in the Western Mediterranean Sea, with a special attention to the dynamics and ecological role of small pelagic fish (SPF), and the transfer of energy canalized by these species. SPF species, mainly anchovy and sardine, are key organisms of Mediterranean marine ecosystems due to their ecological and economic role. However, there are still fundamental aspects of their biology and ecology that remain practically unknown.
