Settlement of reed at the harbor location ‘Haken’

Effectiveness according to development targets of measure

Definition of development targets:
  • Development of 5.3 km² of reed bed to compensate the loss of reed in a harbor basin called ‘Blumensandhafen’ that was removed in order to build new container facilities.
  • Increase of the ecological value of the adjacent mudflats and shallow water area, by stabilizing some parts of the mudflats using sand and reed.
Achievement of development targets
The measure is currently in the implementation phase, the development targets are expected to be achieved. A first control of the site showed that the western area developed as planned. In the eastern part some adaption will be necessary because the ground of the planting is partly too high and partly too low. Some material has to be removed.
