Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel, Department Experimental Ecology
New mapping of underwater habitats in the nature reserve Schleimündung

Within a master thesis at the GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel a mapping of the underwater area at the seaside of the nature protection area “Schleimünde” is performed by using ship operated video recordings. The survey is supposed to give an overview regarding the mussel beds and especially point out possible changes, since the nature protection area “Schleimünde” gives shelter not only to numerous water birds, but also several thousand Eider ducks (Somateria mollissima), which use the area as winter resting place. For them blue mussels are an important food source. The data are analysed in a cooperation between university and economy by a student working at the company MariLim.
