TRAFFIC - Trophic Transfer Efficiency in the Benguela Current


Leibnitz Centre for Tropical Marine Research

A close look at the productivity of the Benguela Upwelling System


TRAFFIC is a cooperation of German, Namibian and South African institutes, aiming to understand the processes that drive the trophic structures of the northern and southern Benguela Upwelling System and the associated impact on fisheries and climate. The investigation will unravel the impact of ecosystem structure on fisheries yields and CO2 fluxes.
