DiadSea is working on creating plans for taking care of certain types of fish, called diadromous fish, in the Atlantic Area. These fish live in both fresh and saltwater, which makes it challenging to manage and protect them. They are found in the Atlantic Area, but there aren't many shared solutions to deal with the problems they face, especially with the added issues of climate change.

DiadSea is building on the work of another project, DiadES, which focused on these fish in freshwater habitats. Now, DiadSea is concentrating on the part of the ocean where these fish live, which is not well understood, and there are fewer plans to protect them. They plan to map where these fish are in the ocean, figure out important areas for them, use the latest models to predict how they will be affected by the changing climate, create a big observatory for these fish, and share what they learn with others.

By taking care of these fish and protecting their habitats, DiadSea hopes to not only help the environment but also bring benefits to local communities, both economically and culturally.
