The councillor for Sustainable City, Cristina Mora, attended this meeting focused on the elimination of nutrients from the lagoon thanks to the species ‘Ostrea edulis’.

The Museum of the Roman Theatre in Cartagena hosted the RemediOS conference on Thursday 15 September, which is part of the Oyster Initiative in the Mar Menor, a project driven by eight experts focused on the elimination of nutrients in the lagoon thanks to the filtering effect of the species ‘Ostrea edulis’.

The project is promoted by the Spanish Institute of Oceanography (IEO-CSIC) and includes experts from ICM-CSIC, the University of the Basque Country, Dalhousie University, the University of Santiago de Compostela, CIMAXunta, all of them coordinated by the Murcia Oceanographic Centre.

The conference was brought to a close by the councillor for Sustainable City, Cristina Mora. The event focused on the flat oyster, known as Ostrea edulis, which was considered as a species to be evaluated for bioremediation actions, with the salt lagoon of the Mar Menor as a case study.

In this line, the general objective of the Initiative is to promote the use of bivalves in bioremediation actions in degraded ecosystems by applying aquaculture techniques.
