We held an international marine field course for students from University of Oulu and Umeå University. The field course was held in Ulkokrunni island, Ii Finland. During the course we learned more about plants growing underwater, different methods used in marine inventories, benthic fauna, marine geology and birds of the Bothnian Bay.
On the island Pensaskari in Tornio archipelago is a small lake which have become overgrown with the invasive Canadian waterweed (Elodea canadensis). Watch the video and news article from the Swedish television that followed the work removing the invasive species from the lake. Or check out the news article from the Finnish media.
We were finally able to cross the border and meet live after almost one year of Teams & Skype meetings! We did a field trip together and visited both Haparanda Archipelago National Park in Sweden and Bothnian Bay National Park in Finland.
Spending time by the sea this summer? Great! The coast and archipelago of the Bothnian Bay is a truly beautiful place to visit and enjoy. The underwater nature is highly important for the overall health of the sea, take care of it and many generations after us will be able to enjoy the Bothnian Bay.
By noticing the species, reporting them and never releasing them back into the wild you can help stopping the spread of them in the Bothnian Bay.
