Danish team of researchers and developers visit NOVAGRASS-partner in the United States

The NOVAGRASS-partner in the United States, Virginia Institute of Marine Science, the University of Virginia, is a global leader in restoration of eelgrass beds. They account for more than 75% of the world’s restored eelgrass beds. The great success is due to a change in technique. Instead of moving entire eelgrass plants, VIMS’ developing work of harvesting and broadcasting eelgrass seeds has been key to the successful establishment of large areas of eelgrass beds that have now become self-protective. Researchers and developers from the NOVAGRASS project have visited VIMS during the summer of 2013.
