Organisation profile

  • Habitat carrying capacity, stability and resilience
  • Habitat restoration and stock enhancement
  • Human impacts and sustainable utilisation of living resources
  • Tools for integrated systems management

Research and advice within this section is focused on the structure, dynamics and exploitation of coastal and estuarine ecosystems. This includes research on the importance of coastal habitats for juvenile fish and shellfish, habitat stability and resilience to anthropogenic impacts like exploitation of biotic and abiotic resources, marine constructions and eutrophication, and enhancement or restoration of coastal fish and shellfish populations. Ongoing research is conducted on optimizing both mussel fishery and marine shellfish culture with regards to management and planning as well as on development of methods for production. Furthermore, research is carried out on systems approach for integrated management of coastal ecosystems, including development of models that facilitate the integration of socio-economic and scientific information and enhance exchange between scientists, managers and stakeholders. A focus area is the further development and improvement of data relative to impact assessments of e.g. fisheries and other human activities.
