Are you a university student and want to learn about marine species in the Bothnian Bay and how to conduct marine field inventories? On 16–20 of August 2021 we arrange a marine field course on the island of Ulkokrunni in the northern Bothnian Bay.
The aim of our survey study was to get information about how the existing protected areas are used, what kind of needs there are, and if a cross-border protected area would be something that people are interested in visiting. We got 217 answers to our questionnaire and we thank all of you for your invaluable […]

During the field inventories in Summer 2020 we found the first Braun’s stoneworts (Chara braunii) from the shore of Oulu.
One of the areas SeaCOMBO project mapped this summer was Siikajoki. Siikajoki was chosen since we needed more information of the marine habitats in the area and since models predicted that we would find endangered species from there.
SeaCOMBO, Metsähallitus and Search and Rescue organized an event for Kello school kids on the Baltic Sea Day.
SeaCOMBO joined the Marine Days (Perämeren Saaristopäivät) in Kemi 26th and 27th on June 2020.
