Laboratory for marine resources and aquacultures investigation
Laboratory for marine resources and aquacultures investigation is established though the project “Incresing the capacity of the Laboratory for Food chemistry and Environment and turning it to a Laboratory for marine resources and aquacultures investigation”. The laboratory is specialized and has a 10 years experience on analyses for quality and safety of marine organisms and aquacultures as food, where Black Sea mussels, Rapana and macroalgae are studied. Persistent organic pollutants, toxic metals, fatty acid and fat soluble vitamins content in marine and fresh water organisms are investigated. Scientists are experts in HPLC-UV/FL, GS/MS and ICP-OES techniques.
Recently projects covering marine toxins and seasonal variations in lipid profile and thermal stress effect on the lipid composition of Black sea
Mytilus galloprovincialis and Rapana venosa are being developed. Methods for estimating safety and quality of maricultures as food, determination of quality in sense of fatty acids, fat-soluble vitamins and essential elements in maricultures as food, health risk assessment in sense of persistent organic pollutants, toxic metals and marine toxins when consuming maricultures will be implemented.
