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 Posidonia oceanica 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.

News and events
Reconnaissance activities for missing gear in the Gulf of Asinara are starting, thanks to the collaboration with the divers of the Sassari Fire Brigade. The activities will allow us to update the data in our possession and will allow us to plan the upcoming removal and inactivation activities.
The condition of each tool found will be carefully evaluated and on a case-by-case basis it will be decided whether to proceed with the removal or inactivation, choosing the most suitable procedure to protect the habitat.
Serena Lomiri, ISPRA Project Leader of Strong Sea Life, will participate in the Elective Assembly of Confcooperative Lavoro e Servizi Sardegna, making a contribution with particular reference to the recent and important collaboration created on the occasion of the launch of the Strong Sea Project between ISPRA and cooperative enterprises engaged in the various activities in support of the same.
