TOMSK, Aug 26 – RIA Tomsk. Alexey Orlov, an employee of the Biological Institute of the Tomsk State University (BI TSU), led a transarctic expedition across the four northern seas; the result of the sea trip will be eco-recommendations for companies mastering the resources of the Arctic basin, the press service of the university reported on Monday.

It is specified that the scientific group of the expedition included ichthyologists, oceanologists, genetics, hydrobiologists and hydrochemists of the Russian Federal Research Institute of Fisheries and Oceanography (VNIRO). Scientists will explore water biological resources in Chukot, East Siberian, Kara Seas and Laptev Sea.

"The employee of BI TSU and chief researcher of VNIRO Alexey Orlov heads the trans-Arctic expedition on the four northern seas. The data obtained within the framework of the Transarctic Transition will allow to assess the state of marine ecosystems and help to develop the right approach to reduce anthropogenic risks in the development of the richest resources of the Arctic basin", – it is said in the message.

The researchers are on the ship "Professor Levanidov" and work 24 hours a day in two watches. The scientists observe avifauna and marine mammals, analyze eco-recordings and collect a variety of material for study. They also sample microplastic concentrations in Arctic seas.

"The opportunities offered to us by the Arctic require a competent and careful attitude to its resources, a responsible approach to the preservation of a unique and very vulnerable ecosystem for future generations," – Orlov is quoted in the message.

According to the press service of TSU, the end of the expedition is planned for the beginning of October.
