Restoration of damaged Posidonia oceanica meadows of the Sinis MPA and sustainable mooring management model

Sustainable Development Goals:



The aim of the MedSeaGrass project is to restore the integrity of priority marine habitat Posidonia oceanica meadow through environmental engineering interventions act to repopulate a degraded area of the MPA "Penisola del Sinis - Isola di Mal di Ventre", and to protect the habitat through the development of a mooring management system in the Marine Protected Area.

Activities include

  • Mapping Posidonia oceanica meadow distribution and identifying degraded areas.
  • Implementing a demonstration activity to restore critical degraded Posidonia oceanica meadow.
  • Designing an APP to monitor mooring activities and their impacts on the habitat
  • Introducing an eco-fee for mooring users to be reinvested in the MPA for a continuous seagrass meadows conservation.
