On Thursday last week, we gathered at the Askö Marine Laboratory for this years Winter Party. For dinner was served, amongst other dishes, a very nice smoked salmon, fresh from the new laboratory smokehouse. The activity for the evening was to create a painting duringthe dinner. It turned out an inspired new piece of art where the bladderwrack was a given part, together with a golden Saduria entomon, a mussel containing a pearl and other important objects from the station.
Finally, you can see some of the lovely underwater nature from the Baltic Sea!
As a part of the project Naturkartan,(Nature Map) a Swedish project in the East Gotha county that aims to increase access and awareness to the nature in the county, they have also posted several short films, showing nature under the surface. Have a look at The Underwater Map (Undervattenskartan)and enjoy some summer, sun and lovely waters.
It’s wonderful to take a virtual swim and enjoy the greenery at this cold and bleak time of year. We hope that more coastal counties will pick up on the trend and choose to market their blue side.
