Settlement of reed at the harbor location ‘Haken’

Background and side conditions

The measure was necessary in order to compensate the reed removal in the ‘Blumensandhafen’ in relation of the construction of an unloading bridge. According to the environmental agency of the City of Hamburg (BSU) the already existing mudflats in the area of the ‘Haken’ were in a bad condition (Fig. 2 and Fig. 3). Therefore stabilizing and improving the existing habitats by planting reed at the ‘Haken’ could be considered as a compensation measure for the bridge construction in the ‘Blumensandhafen’.
