“Maritime Allotments” is an organisation working to establish urban aquaculture in the harbour of Copenhagen and in other cities in Denmark and abroad. Formally established as an organisation in 2013, Maritime Nyttehaver now has close to 200 members.
Some past and current activities of the organization involve:

In addition to these projects the organisation has hosted numerous public events in order to create awareness and support for the organisation’s work.
