STRONG SEA - Survey and TReatment ON Ghost nets SEA LIFE - is a project funded under the LIFE program, priority area Nature and Biodiversity, on the funds established in the 2014-2020 programming. The project formally started in December 2021 and has a duration of 5 years.
The aim of the project is to protect and improve the conservation status of the priority grassland habitat of Oceanic Posidonia and habitat Reefs coralligenous, both included in Directive 92/43 / EEC and in the network of Natura 2000 sites. These habitats were chosen for their high ecological and environmental value and for their representativeness in the study area.
The study area of the project includes the Gulf of Asinara and the North West coast of Sardinia.
The researchers of the Strong Sea project have developed three maps to better understand the Marine Protected Area of Asinara.
The first map is dedicated to biocenoses, the communities of living organisms present in the area. The second reports the location and extension of the Posidonia oceanica and coral reef habitats. In the third, it is possible to identify the buoy fields, the zoning of the Marine Protected Area and the entry and anchoring points.

The program will develop around a series of round tables led by various speakers and experts from the maritime and fisheries sector.
