During her summer trip, Gabriele Heinen-Kljajic, the Minister of Science in Lower Saxony, stopped over at the Institute for Chemistry and Biology of the Marine Environment (ICBM) in Wilhelmshaven. One highlight of the visit was a tour with the research boat “Otzum” in the Jade Bay. Prof. Dr. Jörg-Olaf Wolff (right) presented the new project “Macroplastics” which investigates the distribution of plastic waste in the North Sea and will develop avoidance strategies.
