macroalgae_tvarminne_303x148In the Baltic Sea, nutrient enrichment enhances growth of filamentous macroalgae, making their harvesting and cultivation an interesting option for nutrient removal. Algal biomass may be used for a variety of purposes like production of biofuel, fertiliser or animal feed.
