Vassilikos Bay

The MariaBox pilot site in Cyprus will be located in Vassilikos Bay, near a gilt-head (sea) bream fishery, in order to detect man-made and algae pollution level that can enter the food chain. The Vassilikos port is also very close to that location and affects the environmental pollution, while the Limassol port (biggest port in Cyprus) is also less than 20km away.

The demo site is regularly controlled by DFMR, a fact that will allow validating the MariaBox in comparison with conventional monitoring methods.
