Experimental technique for the recovery of Posidonia oceanica meadows

Development of an experimental technique that involves the collection and cultivation of Posidonia oceanica fragments and seeds grown under laboratory-controlled conditions or obtained directly from natural seagrass meadows. Subsequently, the seedlings are to be transplanted in the trenches opened on the seafloor due to works associated to the laying of submarine electricity cables and that affected Posidonia oceanica meadows.
