About usThe challenge of SASPAS is to preserve and get a better status of conservation of biodiversity of the Adriatic Sea ecosystem in order to decrease its vulnerability.
The overall objective is to improve seagrass preservation and restoration through: laying safe anchorage innovative systems, performing pilot transplantations, carrying out monitoring activities and by defining an integrated management system for seagrasses in Adriatic area.
The main outputs referred to the activities are: a Monitoring system with 2 data collections/monitoring campaigns, the placement of environmentally friendly anchoring systems, pilot transplantations of seagrasses and an Integrated Management System for seagrasses in the Adriatic area, made by a GIS Digital Information Platform and a Marine Seagrass Safeguard Integrated Management Program.
The project have developed a large-scale GIS for the Adriatic that presents a series of map-themes available for managers (public, agencies, parks, various authorities...) to make them able to implement safeguard measures and promote a sustainable use of the coast
It is a tool developed to make available the documents and scientific sources used within the project to develop the integrated management system for the protection of marine phanerogams. Moreover are publicly available some of the project deliverables.
