The advantages of our test facility:

  • A high diversity and sound abundances of a broad range of aquatic species.
  • The facility is surrounded by a buffer zone of meadows - no contamination by agriculture pratice.
  • The source of sediment and water (naturalized ponds) of the mesocosms is located at the test facility - best conditions for recolonisation.
