BIAS end-of-project workshop

The end-of-project workshop of the BIAS project has come to an end. During two intensive days managers, regulators, scientist and policy makers have been informed on the results of the project at the Swedish Agency for Marine and Water Management, SwAM, in Gothenburg, Sweden. The activities of BIAS were presented demonstrating that management of continuous sound in the Baltic Sea is achievable. On thursday, the Soundscape planning tool and the implementation plan were presented. The soundscape planning tool takes us one step closer to Good Environmental Status.
