Publications by sustainMare

The sustainMare projects develop diverse advice for the protection and sustainable use of the seas. The results of our research are discussed scientifically through publications in dedicated journals. In addition, transdisciplinary research requires varied exchange between different actors in science, politics and society. Therefore, the research results are also reflected in press releases, talks and posters for scientists as well as for the general public. This allows for the best possible access to scientific know-how.
