Could the spreading of activated limestone or fishing stickleback help remove nutrients from the Baltic Sea? Do these new conservation measures have potential to save the Baltic Sea, or will they remain as experiments? In the SEABASED online event on January 26th, 2021 we revealed the results from SEABASED pilots that aim to reduce internal nutrient load. We heard keynotes and expert views from Finland and Sweden. The event was held in English.
Eva Björkman with her activated limestone innovation was awarded as top 5 innovations in Stockholm.
The population of pike has decreased radically in recent decades, which has created an imbalance in the coastal ecosystems in the Baltic Sea. In the SEABASED-project, we have worked to investigate if there were suitable conditions in our selected pilot areas in Östergötland to establish “pike factories”. Administrator Kenneth Winroth from the County Administrative Board of Östergötland reveals what we have learned about planning and constructing a pike factory.
