Restoration of Eelgrass Meadows

Southern Sweden is subjected to extensive coastal erosion, in part due to rising sea levels, increased maritime traffic and extreme weather due to climate change. 

Planting eelgrass protects against coastal erosion and strengthens marine diversity.

WSP is assisting with planning and advising on planting locations and methods.

Eelgrass also provides ecosystem services in the form of water purification and carbon storage.
