The spread of non-indigenous species is worldwide an increasing phenomenon, an important issue in the Baltic Sea, its Gulf of Finland and the Gulf of Bothnia. „Invasive organisms“ become mainly transported in ballast water inside big cargo ships into areas where they could not spread out by natural means. If the conditions in the new location are suitable for the species, they may disturbe the local ecosystem, develop pest-like characteristics and cause socio-economic problems in the recipient area. The issue is highly complex, therefore it requires transdisciplinary research. The project develops its own culture of time. That is what underpins the aesthetics of sustainability.
