UIB to carry out a study for the APB on the state of the posidonia oceanica in the water surrounding its ports

Palma, 31/03/2017

The Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB) will ask the University of the Balearic Islands (UIB) to conduct a study on the state of the posidonia oceanica in the external waters (Zone II) of the ports its manages, and also on the factors that can affect its proper maintenance and the protection of biodiversity.

This request comes in response to that made by the Mediterranean Sailors Association (ADN) to the organisation's president, Joan Gual de Torrella, to make the UIB aware that they would like to know the current state of the seabed and the extent to which anchorage and recreational sailing in general affect the posidonia.

Today, Gual met with the president of the association, Gabriel Dols Mateu, and informed him that the request will be submitted to the UIB to evaluate the state of the area in the most documented and thorough manner possible and to study the action that is required to protect the seabed, pursuant to the framework partnership agreement between both.
