New Mussels paper published
A new scientific paper has been published by some of the members of the SUBMARINER Network Mussels Working Group:
'Cleaning up seas using blue growth initiatives: Mussel farming for eutrophication control in the Baltic Sea'
It is now open access: available here.
- Mussel farming is a viable internal measure to address Baltic Sea eutrophication
- Rates of nutrient removal depend on salinity at the regional scale and food availability at the local scale
- Cost effectiveness of nutrient removal by mussel farming depends also on farm type
- Total farm area needed for achieving HELCOM nutrient reduction targets is realistic
