City of Kiel
Inventory and assessment of protected biotopes along the Kiellinie and the slope of the Förde in Düsternbrook

Due to new flood water protection systems as well as new public uses the shorelines of the Kielline and the Düsternbrooker Fördehang should be redesigned. The MariLim GmbH is assigned to investigate the shallow waters of protectable biotopes. Side-sonar-scans and underwater video used to map these areas. The out coming data will be digitally processed and presented in maps and in an explanatory report.

Survey on potential areas of appearance of habitat type 1140 (LRT 1140) "vegetation free mud, sand and mixed mud flats" along the Baltic Sea coast in Schleswig-Holstein

iA GIS-supported evaluation using the coastal line, the geomorphology and the position, plus a comparison with relevant technical bases was made for the identification of potential occurrences of the habitat type 1140 (LRT 1140) "vegetation free mud flats and sand flats", which naturally occur as windwatts (sea bed not covered by seawater due to wind action) on the coast of Schleswig-Holstein. In all fjords, deep inlets of the coast and inland lakes all the expanses of water were considered, which extend up to a water depth of 1 m and are large enough to be counted as a tidal area according to the habitat type LRT 1140.

As complement to the WFD monitoring in Schleswig-Holstein the makrophyte flora and fauna resident in the Schlei fjord are to be assessed, to discuss potential measures regarding improvement of the conditions

In addition to the monitoring program for macrophytes in Schleswig-Holstein 2017 (based on the requirements of the EU Water Framework Directive), the macrophyte-flora and fauna of the Schlei shall be investigated. Furthermore, the distribution and thickness of the Schlei’s digested sludge have to be assessed by means of geological analyses. Both data sets will be evaluated jointly to deduce possible measures for the improvement of the ecological status of the Schlei. MariLim GmbH will analyse sediment and macrozoobenthos from different transects throughout the Schlei by the use of a small bottom grab. The macrophytobenthos will be assessed at selected sampling stations via rake samples and an observation box which allows to observe the water body from boat. All samples will be analysed in the firm’s laboratory. The resulting data will be populated and processed in the MariLim data base and converted into GIS maps, which will be presented and evaluated in an advisory report.

Survey of marine growth and biotope mapping within the coastal area of Niendorf by using underwater video technique as well as subsequent environmental supervision of the construction

In the offshore sediment area off Niendorf sand fillings as well as removals are planned within coastal protection measures. The project may affect the submarine area, which is part of the FFH area “„Ostseeküste am Brodtener Ufer“ (FFH DE 1931-301). Therefore, an investigation of the planning area is required, with respect to protected biotopes according to the Federal Act for the Protection of Nature (§ 30 BNatSchG) and the FFH habitat types. Furthermore, MariLim GmbH is tasked with the biological and environmental supervision of the construction site in 2018.

Basic survey of marine habitats of the lake “Borgstedter See” in the Kiel Canal due to reconstruction of the bridge “Rader Hochbrücke”

In the course of the new construction of the Rader Hochbrücke MariLim is assigned to do the biological assessment. It contains sampling with Van Veen grab, Kieler Kinderwagen and scratch samples. MariLim will also do the analysis, the assessment and prepare a summary report.

Basic survey of marine habitats within the reconstruction area of the naval pilot squadron 5 (MFG 5) in Kiel Holtenau

The city of Kiel aims the urban redevelopment of the former restricted area of the naval squadron 5 (MFG 5) in Kiel Holtenau. MariLim is responsible for the baseline survey of marine habitats in the redevelopment area, including zoobenthos, macrophytes, fish, phytoplankton (subcontractor: AquaEcology GmbH & Co. KG) and marine mammals (subcontractor: BioConsult SH GmbH & Co. KG).

Biotope mapping and assessment of the sublitoral habitat next to a sheet pile wall in the Kiel “Scheerhafen”, including a maritime ecological expert report regarding the renovation of the sheet pile

The MariLim GmbH monitored the sublitoral habitat at the Querkaje - Scheerhafen Kiel-Wik and prepared a maritime ecological report for Pro Regione GmbH (Flensburg). This report contains the results of the macrozoo- and macrophytobenthos sampling by divers and by UW video and forms the basis for a landscape maintenance plan for the rehabilitation of the sheet pile wall by the LKN-SH.

Survey on snail species in the filtering water of the treatment plant of Bülk to evaluate the required filtering mesh size

Due to numerous snails in the filtered water of the Klärwerk Kiel-Bülk, the filtration system gets reworked. MariLim GmbH is assigned to identify the snails in the filtered water and give a recommendation to the mash size of this new filtration system.
