Studies realized in the oceanic Posidonia in Fomentera

Recently the Association Vellmarí together with Oceansnell's technical support has initiated a project that consists of Mapeando Posidonia's meadows of the island of Formentera, this time with a technology of last generation who will allow to know in detail the extension of the meadow and his thickness. With 2016/2017 will be able to compare the degree of loss of the meadow from 2012.
The protection project of the Meadows Posidonia in the spaces LIC (Place of Community Interest of the Nature 2000) of the Balearic Islands (LIFE POSIDONIA), promoted by the Government of the Balearic Islands, with financing of the European Union (EU) initiated in 2001 and finished in 2006.

For it, between other actions, there was carried out the installation of buoys of low ecological impact, to prevent the boats, with his systems of anchorage, from causing the degradation or destruction of Posidonia's meadows.
