Macro algae challenge in the Black Sea

Macro algae challenge in the Black Sea

The amounts of macro algae ending up on the Black Sea coast of Romania seems to have increased over the last years. Especially on the recreational beaches this has caused a high discomfort to tourists as the dying and rotting of these algae results in bad smell, and therefore in a decrease of the recreational value of the beaches. The yearly costs for daily cleaning the beaches increased drastically.  The project team was requested to consult the client on the impact of geological and polluter factors on integrated management.
