The major objectives of the EU-funded project BEEP were to study and compare biological effects of contaminants in fish and bivalves from three major geographical areas: the Mediterranean Sea, the Baltic Sea and the North Atlantic. 30 partners from 12 European countries collaborated with the goal to develop, validate and calibrate a variety of biological effects techniques, ranging from measurements on the molecular to the individual levels. The vTI contributed to studies in the Baltic Sea. Further objectives of the project were to establish a European network of experts and to recommend techniques for application in national and international marine monitoring programmes. The project directly served the protection of the seas and their living resources. The associated gain in knowledge facilitates the consideration of sustainability aspects in the framework of the national and international marine environmental management policy. In addition, data were generated with relevance for a sustainable food quality and consumer health and safety. Cruises 2001-2003: annually 1 Cruise FRV "Walther Herwig III".
