SUBMARINER Compendium released for consultation and contributions
The SUBMARINER Compendium provides, for the first time, a comprehensive assessment of the potential for innovative and sustainable uses of Baltic marine resources. The current state of knowledge has been gathered and set against the backdrop of environmental, institutional and regulatory conditions for the following topics:
Macroalgae Harvesting & Cultivation
Large-Scale Microalgae Cultivation
Sustainable Fish Aquaculture
Combinations with Offshore Wind Parks
The SUBMARINER Compendium serves as the background for the SUBMARINER Roadmap to be published in summer 2013, indicating concrete steps to be taken in the coming years so as to promote beneficial uses. You are invited to contribute to the ongoing consultation of the Compendium.

REview of ÅLAND AQUACULTURE WEEK – SUBMARINER to Publish Mussel perspectives as a follow-up
Impressions and presentations from the Åland Aquaculture Week, a joint event of the projects Aquabest and SUBMARINER, can now be found here. The event was held in Mariehamn, Åland on 9–12 October 2012 and opened by Carina Aaltonen, Åland Minister of Social Affairs, Health and Environment and Fredrik Karlström, Åland Minister of Trade and Industry. Discussions focused on ways towards a sustainable development of the Baltic Sea Region‘s future aquaculture. The Åland Government has a pilot mussel farm in the archipelago municipality of Kumlinge which was visited in a field trip (see picture). As a follow-up publication of the event, SUBMARINER will produce a short magazine assembling the perspectives on the potential of mussel farming in the Baltic Sea Region that were exchanged during the event.
SUBMARINER: The Baltic Sea Region's Contribution to Blue Growth
