The video shows first experiences and potentials of floating islands in lagoons of the southern Baltic Sea.
The background is the use of planted floating wetlands to improve water quality in eutrophic coastal areas. At the same time, the islands offer other advantages, such as being a habitat for animals and plants, but also disadvantages, such as the shadowing the water.
The short film shows different opinions of Prof. Dr. Artūras Razinkovas-Baziukas (Klaipeda University), Aušra Feser (Director of the Curonian Spit National Park) and Narunas Lendraitis (Deputy Mayor of the Municipality of Neringa (Lithuania)).
The video was produced as part of the LiveLagoons project and is set in Lithuania, where first islands have already been installed.
