Canary Current LME

The Canary Current Large Marine Ecosystem (LME) is bounded by the Atlantic Ocean and is characterized by its temperate climate. This LME, situated off the coast of Northwest Africa, shows major upwelling and other seasonal nutrient enrichments. Climate is the primary force driving the LME, with intensive fishing as the secondary driving force. Hydrographic and climatic conditions play a major role in driving the dynamics of this LME
