Between 19th and 29th of August there was the seagrass sampling expedition and we travelled around Crete and sampling in six different sites: Lendas, Elounda, Gournes, Kouremenos, Chania and Souda. In each site we searched for three different habitats characterized by the presence of Cymodocea, Halophila and Posidonia and collected seawater, sediments and seagrasses samples. We did not find all the habitats in each site but only in Kouremenos, Chania and Souda.

The effect of hypoxia on seagrass metabolites and carbon, nitrogen, phosphorus and sulfur pools in seagrass, sediment and water, will be studied in selected locations in Crete. The main focus of this expedition is to detect possible relationships between sediment conditions and seagrass growth and suggest early signals of seagrass regression due to hypoxic events.
