The Sir Alister Hardy Foundation for Ocean Science (SAHFOS) is an international charity that operates the Continuous Plankton Recorder (CPR) Survey. The Foundation has been collecting data from the North Atlantic and the North Sea on biogeography and ecology of plankton since 1931. More recently, as the Foundation has become more involved in international projects, work has expanded to include other regions around the globe. SAHFOS plays an active role in the research community. Publishing the findings from this research enables us to share our world class science, and reach a variety of different audiences.
