New collaboration between Aarhus Harbor and the Department of Biology focus on the environmental sustainability and biodiversity in the marine waters around Aarhus. A main task will be to recreate habitats for fish and other aquatic organisms around the harbor and in Aarhus Bay.  Already, the collaboration includes the research vessel, Aurora, owned by Aarhus University, and the establishment of Biohuts – artificial habitats that increase biodiversity of fish in the harbor.
