Project

How does bottom trawling affect seafloor integrity, water quality and protected areas in the Baltic Sea?

Goal: This project uses field measurements and experiments to investigate how bottom trawling in the Baltic Sea affects the seabed, water quality and nutrient and contaminant fluxes. Implications of and for protected areas (areas seasonally closed to fishing) will be evaluated.
