The Issue

Outbreaks of marine diseases are expected to increase with continued climate change and other human activities. These outbreaks can have far-reaching ecological, cultural and economic consequences.

PRIMED Mission

The mission of the Primary Responders in Marine Emergent Disease (PRIMED) Network is to detect, monitor and effectively respond to marine wildlife disease emergencies in a changing ocean.
