SeaCOMBO – Sea cooperation for management of the Bothnian Bay

SeaCOMBO is a project working for an increased cooperation between Sweden and Finland when it comes to conservation and management of the marine environment in the Bothnian Bay, the northernmost part of the Baltic Sea.

The project will investigate the possibilities for a transboundary marine protected area, develop a plan for restoration of marine habitats and further increase the knowledge about the underwater environment and its inhabitants. This will contribute towards a sustainable management and improved environmental status of the Bothnian Bay. The project started in May 2020 and will end in December 2021. SeaCOMBO is a continuation of the project SEAmBOTH – Seamless maps and management of the northern Bothnian Bay.
