In order to exchange knowledge, and receive necessary input from the scientific community the County Administrative Board of Halland County, Swedish Agency for Marine and Water Management and SLU Swedish Species Information Centre planned an international seminar to be held in Falkenberg in late June 2020. The meeting was cancelled due to Covid-19. When it became clear that no real-life meeting could be arranged neither in 2020 nor in 2021, we decided to arrange a shorter webinar.
