We subdivide our work into three large programmes:

MEDTOP – Scientific projects using top pelagics as umbrella species for the conservation of the open sea ecosystem.

TODOS POR LA MAR – Engaging stakeholders and the general public in practical and tangible conservation.

ALNITAK ACADEMY– Our courses “Monitoring the open seas” & “Advanced course on tracking of great pelagic species” with practical hands-on experience on board.

Alnitak partners with top institutes such as the US Fish and Wildlife Service, NOAA, the Balearic Islands Coastal Observing and Forecasting System (SOCIB), OceanCare, Spanish Institute of Oceanography (IEO),IFREMER, Exeter University and more.
