Settlement of reed at the harbor location ‘Haken’

Expected effect

The initial planting of reeds was considered to be qualified for a fast establishment of dense reed settlements. It should be analyzed in detail how fast the reed, which was planted on 10 % of the total area, will have spread over the whole area. The reed settlement was considered to overlay the mudflats, and after a few years protected biotopes are expected to be developed. By the implementation of the measure the area of the harbor basin will be appreciated regarding the biodiversity.
