The full potential of the bioeconomy is awakening in Northern Germany: the biological productivity of the North and Baltic Sea are still underestimated. The Bioeconomy Innovation Space at Marine Sites (BaMS) shows ways and opens up opportunities to rethink aquatic resources.

Aquatic biomass can be integrated into already functioning green, bioeconomic cycles at various points of the cascade, e.g. as a feed additive or soil improver for agriculture, as a substitute for chemically produced chemicals or as a valuable raw material for natural cosmetics. The possibilities are like the world's oceans: infinitely large and not even remotely explored!

Aquaculture concept for saline species, i.e. giant groupers and shrimps. Through integrated cultivation of salt-tolerant plants, food is produced in a resource-friendly way. From the few residues, a high-quality biochar fertilizer is produced.
Improving aquatic husbandry conditions by use of innovative bioindicators.
A biorefinery concept that allows the economic and sustainable use of regional algal biomass.
Our business accelerator for the Blue Bioeconomy helps to pave the way from a good idea to full market maturity. Tailored support for blue bioeconomy founders.
Biochip-based technology can measure and standardize stress, health and animal welfare to further improve fish production in aquaculture.
Previously unused mussel and algae "leftovers" are used economically and sustainably through versatile use, e.g. in novel foods.
The main objective of the project is the reduction of nutrients in eutrophic coastal waters and in the wastewater of marine aquaculture facilities. Nutrient reduction is achieved through biomass production of vascular plants. Various flood-tolerant species of different salt tolerances are tested.
Microalgae production can be a beneficial supplement in agricultural processes to optimize yields. Algae farming recycles unused nutrients, CO2 and heat from biogas plants and other problematic surface waters.
