SeaForest LIFE at the Nautical Institute of Procida

Last week an on-line seminar was held with the Nautical Institute of Procida regarding the protection of Posidonia oceanica and the impacts generated by recreational boating, an activity carried out within the Senate and Environment Call. In this regard, ISPRA beneficiary of our project, supported the classes in an analysis using satellite images of the flow of pleasure boating around the island in order to verify the possible impacts on the Posidona meadaows and on hydrocarbon pollution. The seminar naturally talked about the SeaForest LIFE project, the protection of P. oceanica and the new innovative monitoring systems. Specifically, the monitoring and census procedures of the boats developed within our project have been adopted.
