The Community concludes the third campaign of physical-chemical characterization, currents and ecological status of the Mar Menor

June 25th, 2017

This complete analysis has been developed by a multidisciplinary team of specialists from different centers of the Spanish Institute of Oceanography and the Hydrographic Institute of the Navy

The Autonomous Community has just completed the fieldwork of the third campaign of physical-chemical characterization, currents and ecological status of the Mar Menor developed on this occasion by a multidisciplinary team of specialists from different centers of the Spanish Institute of Oceanography of Murcia, Gran Canaria, Vigo, Madrid;

And the Hydrographic Institute of the Navy of the Navy, based in Cadiz.

This exhaustive analysis of all the characteristics of the lagoon will be completed with a fourth in September and all of them are complementary, "allowing to have the greatest knowledge that we have had until the present time of the Mar Menor", said the Minister of Tourism, Culture and the Environment, Javier Celdrán.

As for the samples taken in the last days, these will be used to determine the currents of the Mar Menor, by means of its exhaustive measurement throughout the whole lagoon.

Celdrán said that "this will provide a basic knowledge of what we lacked, which will be useful to understand the internal circulation and the Mediterranean Sea of ​​water, nutrients or different species that inhabit it."

Likewise, the geology and deep-sea bottom bathymetry are also being studied.

This is equally important because it allows to have a complete and exact map of the seabed of the lagoon, its physiognomy, the materials of which it is formed or the total volume of water.

Finally, the monitoring of the physical-chemical parameters of water, temperature, salinity, oxygen, nutrients, chlorophyll, … is performed in an intensive network of points and provides information to reveal the behavior of the Mar Menor and complete a diagnosis of Their ecological status.

This third campaign is complementary to the second one of marine geology, in which precise and novel information on bathymetry, the stratification of the seabed and the nature of it, as well as the work being done by research teams from the universities of The Murcia Institute for Agricultural and Food Research and Development (IMIDA), the Center for Soil Science and Applied Biology of the Segura (CEBAS-CSIF) or the Spanish Institute of Oceanography.

During this year, the investment being made in research in the Mar Menor exceeds 1.7 million, to which will add another 7.4 million for the period 2018-2020.

Celdrán concluded that "we are generating the greatest knowledge for the full recovery of the Mar Menor."

IMIDA develops a project for the maintenance of the Germplasm Bank of indigenous animal breeds in danger of extinction

June 25th, 2017

The work is financed by the National Institute of Agricultural and Food Research and Technology (INIA)

The Murciano Institute for Agrarian and Food Research and Development (IMIDA), under the Ministry of Water, Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries, develops a research project for the maintenance and increase of the germplasm bank of indigenous breeds animals in danger of extinction, Murcia pig borne and Murcia-Levantine cow, located in the laboratories of this organism.

The project, entitled 'In situ ex situ conservation of animal genetic resources in the Region of Murcia', is funded by the National Institute of Agricultural and Food Research and Technology (INIA), and addresses, among other aspects, the study of quality Seminal of all the material stored since the beginning of the germplasm bank and the verification of the fertility of said material through the artificial insemination.

According to the research, 15 bulls are currently available for the Murcian-Levantine breed, of which 7,775 cryogenic seminal doses are maintained.

During the first year of this project, a total of 576 0.5 ml straws belonging to the bulls were incorporated.

The germplasm bank of murcian pork is composed of 21 boars, and there are stored 3,439 straws of 0.5 ml.

During this year two new boars have been incorporated, belonging to two herds and registered in the herd book of the breed.

IMIDA plans to continue to increase the germplasm bank with the addition of new stallions of both species to ensure its survival.

It will also continue to perform artificial insemination on females with the cryopreserved material, which will indicate the in vivo quality of the stored seminal material.

A comparative study of the maintenance of seminal quality of the cryocongel doses in liquid nitrogen tanks for more than ten years will also be made.

Importance of autochthonous breeds

International organizations such as FAO emphasize the importance of indigenous breeds in agriculture for their adaptation to local conditions and for having unique genetic material for breeding programs.

All of these breeds have received special protection since the protocols of the UN-sponsored Conference on Biodiversity, held in Rio de Janeiro in 1992, were signed by the states.

Changes in production and consumption trends in the Region were displacing these indigenous breeds, placing them on the brink of extinction.

According to the research, the murcian pig swine showed slow growth and few offspring in each calving, so it was replaced in the 1960s by improved swine breeds that grew faster and produced large layers and high protein meat.

The Murcian-Levantine cattle breed was used as a traction element in agricultural and rural tasks, as well as providing high quality milk and meat.

However, it was falling into oblivion by imposing mechanical traction vehicles, such as tractors and trucks.

Recovery and conservation

The IMIDA Animal Genetic Improvement Team has been working for years on the recovery of endangered breeds.

In addition to the germplasm bank, where spermatozoa, oocytes and embryos of these species are stored, the management of genealogical books is also carried out, in collaboration with livestock associations, by molecular genetic control and morphological purity of the animals.

IMIDA is currently developing actions for the promotion, knowledge and use of indigenous breeds in the Region through a promotion program entitled 'Conservar es comer.

From the genes to the table ', in collaboration with the hotel industry.

In addition, the Region ranks as the second largest growth community in another of the industrial indicators, the order intake index, which rose between January and April, up 16.3 percent from 8, 76 percent of the country as a whole.

"This good progress is also reflected in the attraction of new investments, since the flow of foreign direct investment in the region reached 12 million euros during the first three months of the year," which is a 797 , 7 percent more than in the same period of the previous year and represents the largest relative increase in all the autonomous communities.

In the case of Saprelorca, this dynamism has allowed a total of 60 firms to be installed in this industrial park since 2010, which in turn has meant the creation of a total of 728 jobs.

In addition, last year this business park began a promotional campaign to reindustrialize the land of the region, with bonuses of up to 40 percent in the price of industrial land or the establishment of direct and punctual contacts with the target customers.

One of the consequences of this support plan has been the sale of nearly 8,000 square meters to a company in the agri-food sector and a reserve through a purchase option of another 21,443 square meters, which has generated an investment of 3.5 million And the creation of 50 jobs.

With this latest acquisition, the occupancy level of the Saprelorca Industrial Estate is over 80 percent, reaching a figure of 230 companies, which employ about 2,600 people.

This has allowed the fiscal year 2016 to close with a turnover of 4.1 million euros and a positive balance of 267,819 euros of net profits.
