    what will happen to nutrient distribution if algae or shellfish production is dramatically scaled up?

    interim report

    Development

    • The platform is operational
    • Seaweed model is integrated
    • The web interface is under testing / refinement and can launch the models

    Analysis:

    • Seaweeds model is operational
    • Shellfish model is implemented and under testing / refinement and will be intergrated soon on the platform
    • Farm model is implemented and under testing / refinement
    • Nutrient availability model is in under testing / refinement . The results simulated on a sub-area will be tested with real data on the whole area
    •  Farm optimisation algorithm is under study
    • Net CO2 emission is under testing / refinement and will be integrated soon
    • Impacts on fishing : the methodology is finalised

    Production:

    • Preparing digital maps has began and will be integrated soon. Draft of Emodnet maps is available for seaweed growth
    • writing an article will be initiated soon, based on the results of seaweed growth

    Uptake

    • Will start soon
