CONTRA

The CONTRA project compiles the knowledge required for sustainable management of beach wrack in the Baltic Sea Region and carries out case studies for beach wrack treatment. Beach wrack is organic material washed ashore, e.g. torn off sea grass or brown algae. It can cover Baltic Sea beaches for weeks after storms, rotting into a smelly soup and leaching back into the water. Managing beach wrack is a specific issue for local authorities and the tourism industry, in particular of the western and southern Baltic Sea.
