All results generated on the biology, habitat, distribution and fishing of cockles in the Ria de Aveiro will be shared with stakeholders.

The third day of the event, which coincides with the celebrations of the World Maritime Day, will be dedicated to environmental education in a unique approach of knowledge transfer, in the field, between scientists, fishermen and students.
