MAARES is a study project about the presence of posidonia oceanica in the sea around the Maltese islands.

The MAARES project, in collaboration between Ambjent Malta, the Environment and Resources Authority (ERA), the University of Malta and PIXAM Limited, is investigating where Mediterranean tapeweed is disappearing or being destroyed.

The aim of this project is to protect posidonia oceanica which is an endemic species to the Mediterraenan Sea.

The launch of the project was featured during the main news bulettin on Malta’s national television station TVM and also published on it’s website.

In the last quarter of 2022, the initial results of this project where published in an article on Times of Malta.
