Tools from MuMiPro

MuMiPro will develop two tools:

Site-selection tool

MuMiPro will develop a scientific and administrative tool for optimal location of mussel farms in relation to environmental goals taking into account spatial variations in e.g. food availability and salinity and environmental impact of mussel farming.

Mitigation management tool

MuMiPro will develop a scientific and administrative tool for prediction of the mitigation potential in Danish waters. The project will deliver documentation and quantification of nutrient removal potential selected estuaries, calculations of specific value and general models for payment of ecosystem services provided by mussel farming and a generic model for a GIS-based tool for including mussel farming in the coastal zone.

Environmental management will get a solution to the use of the mitigation mussels that without end-users may represent a waste problem. At present, environmental management only have proof of concept of mussel farming as a mitigation tool.
