Marine field course in the Bothnian Bay

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.

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.
