A promising tool for the restoration and sustainable development of coastal environments or an expensive end-of-pipe technology?
To bring marine biogeochemists, macro-algae experts, modelers, engineers, architects and seaweed farmers together with plankton and fish ecologists and regional experts to discuss pathways towards the realisation of sustainable pilot-scale trials in three sample regions, each with unique impacts and constraints:
- The Bight of Dakar (a heavily polluted environment with direct waste water discharge)
- Madeira (run–off in the oligotrophic ocean)
- The Southwest Baltic Sea (subject to eutrophication from surface runoff)
