Fieldwork in Nordland

During summer 2018, fieldwork was done in Nordland, from Lurøy municipality in the south to Lofoten in the north. The fieldwork was done in collaboration with the project "Marine surveillance Nordland", which NIVA performs on behalf of the Norwegian Environmental Directorate. More than 500 registrations of sugar kelp (Saccharina latissimi) were made along various depth- and environmental gradients, in accordance with standard methods and field protocols. Project member Ingrid Wester Amundsen joined NIVAs marine biologist for a few days at Nesna and took the photos shown below.
