Scientific monitoring in the Björnö bay will continue next year

The foundation has decided to continue monitoring the effects of implemented measures in the Björnö bay in 2017, which means that it will be the 7th consecutive year of scientific monitoring within the project Living coast. The aim is to create a series of scientific data that shows changes in the bay over a long time.

The spread of underwater vegetation, oxygen levels in bottom waters and fish fry distribution are examples of important parameters that will be followed during 2017.

The implemented measures have resulted in Björnö bay now being one of the bays with the best water quality in Stockholm’s archipelago.
