New issue of 'Coastal & Marine' dedicated to mussel farming
The current issue of 'Coastal & Marine' is dedicated to projects and initiatives on blue mussel farming as a measure to improve the water quality in the Baltic Sea. Check out SUBMARINER Network's contribution "Full-scale mussel farming to counteract eutrophication and create new Blue Growth opportunities".
This issue of the EUCC magazine 'Coastal & Marine' presents a synthesis of the latest findings and project results. Mainly based on case study sites in Denmark, Sweden and Germany, the authors report on e.g. optimal production modes, how to quantify the possible positive and adverse effects of mussel farming on ecosystems and how best to integrate mussel farming into coastal maritime spatial planning. The magazine was created by the project BONUS OPTIMUS - ‘Optimization of mussel mitigation cultures for fish feed in the Baltic Sea’ that has received funding from BONUS (Art 185), funded jointly by the EU and Baltic Sea national funding institutions.
