Within the project "Living coast" several measures have been implemented around the heavily eutrophic bay Björnöfjärden in the Stockholm archipelago. One of the land based measures carried out is structure liming, a measure which aims to reduce eutrophication of the bay by reducing the leaching of phosphorus from nearby agriculture activities at Säby farm. We have talked to Emil Rydin, limnologist and project manager at BalticSea2020, and local farmer Mikael Windahl, who have supervised the structure liming in the fields and are now monitoring its effects, both on the crops and the bay.
