Modelling the effect of bridges on harbour porpoise behaviour

The aim of the project was to investigate whether the Great Belt Bridge constitutes a partial barrier to harbour porpoise dispersal. This could indicate that a bridge over Fehmarn Belt might also influence porpoise movement and possibly the dynamics of the population.
