International SEABASED MEASURES webinar

Time: 26 January, 2021

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 will tell more about the results from SEABASED pilots that aim to reduce internal nutrient load.
We will also hear keynotes and expert views from Finland and Sweden.

The event will be held in English.
A more detailed program will be published on the SEABASED website in early 2021 (

The SEABASED Project (Seabased Measures in Baltic Sea Nutrient Management) assessed measures that could improve the status of marine area by reducing the internal load of the sea. The project is led by the John Nurminen Foundation, and the project partners are the Centre for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment for Southwest Finland, Government of Åland, the Åland Fishfarmers’ Association, Stockholm University and County Administrative Board of Östergötland. The project is funded by the EU Interreg Central Baltic programme.
