The marine life of Bothnian Bay met the people of Bothnian Bay – Skärgårdsfesten in Piteå 2018

Last Saturday a day to celebrate the archipelago was hosted at the beautiful harbour Västra Kajen in Piteå . We, marine biologists from the County Administrative Board of Norrbotten, were there to bring SEAmBOTH and the marine life to the visitors.

No doubt the Bothnian Bay interests people in Norrbotten. There was a high curiosity along with plenty of questions and local knowledge about the marine life.

We learnt many new interesting things about our sea and highly enjoyed the day. Just as much as the visitors seemed to be doing on this sunny, late summer day. Thanks to everyone whom we met and got to share experiences with, and to PiteUnika for hosting the event!
