Settlement of reed at the harbor location ‘Haken’


The aim of the project was to upgrade the ecological value of the adjacent mudflats and shallow water area (Fig. 1). This was done by stabilizing some parts of the mudflats with sand and initial reed planting. The establishment of a typical reed habitat of the Elbe estuary floodplain should be enhanced. The reed is expected to spread over the whole measure site (0.53 ha).
Besides it is intended to create breeding sites for typical birds.
