THE Balearic Island government is investing in conserving posidonia seagrass, more commonly known as Neptune grass.

The regional administration’s Environment department will spend €200,000 on 10 projects.

These will include a study on the impact of sewage pipes on the aquatic plant, the installation of protective buoys and the production of informative leaflets.


These were matters discussed at what was the first meeting of the Posidonia Committee, an advisory body made up of experts and administration representatives and planned under the Government’s Posidonia Decree approved nearly two years ago.

The project funding will come from the so-called Posidonia fund.
