- Coastal Management
The ocean is especially rich in biological active substances. Marine natural substances can advance the development of urgently needed medicines and therapy possibilities, e.g. for cancer and infection diseases.
But the active substance richness of the oceans is rarely investigated and used. CRM explores marine natural substances with international partners to make them available for humans in a sustainable way.
The breeding of marine organisms under controlled conditions is called marine aquaculture. In this way fishes, shellfish and algea are basically produced as food. The potential to use aquaculture as provider for raw material or active substances is huge. CRM uses this potential and researches with partners for a sustainable aquaculture. CRM has longtime experience in this field and has build a polyculture of blue mussels and algae in Kiel fjord.
Whether biological analysis, recommendations for compensation measures or studies for environmental compatibility - CRM has lots of experiences in marine construction projects, an extraordinary scuba diving team and PhD marine biologists are in charge.
Coastal management is a gateway between research and attendance. It tries to combine the interests of different groups (fishery, industry, coastal inhabitants, tourism, environment protection, coastal protection and many more) nationally and internationally.
