Baltic Sea mussel farming and nutrient offset conference
The aim of the conference is to raise awareness on the benefits and opportunities of Baltic mussel production and use, and furthermore establish a Baltic mussel farming Working Group that works to maximise these benefits in the Baltic Sea Region. The latest findings in mussel production and use will be presented, incl. project results, solutions and tools, the impacts of technology and recommendations for the future. Special attention will be given to the Baltic Blue Growth project, which has established three fully operational mussel farms in the Baltic Sea to counteract eutrophication and create new Blue Growth opportunities. The conference, organised by Region Östergötland and Submariner network, is funded by the EURDF and is open to anyone with an interest or stake in Baltic mussel farming.

The full programme as well as the time and venue will be available shortly. The organizers will cover the travel costs the same day from Denmark and southern Sweden.
