The Oceans Past Initiative (OPI) is a global network for marine historical research. Our goal is to enhance knowledge and understanding of how the diversity, distribution and abundance of marine life in the world’s oceans have changed over the long term to better indicate future changes and possibilities.

West rive to engage paleo-zoologists, climatologists, social scientists, archaeologists, historians, ecologists, and biologists under the unifying view of our oceans as social-ecological systems, where in people and the natural world are intrinsically coupled.

OPI is connected with the COST Action Oceans Past Platform (2015-2018) that aims to determine the socio-economic, political, cultural and ecological implications of human impacts on marine life, and to develop historical descriptors and indicators for marine and coastal management. Meetings to discuss the current research on the five OPP Working Groups will be held in Sesimbra at May 19th 2017. More informations to escolademar@gmail.com
