During the month of July the staff of the MMG plant (Maricoltura mar grande of Taranto) where the project takes place, placed the dead bodies into the water to anchor the fixed structures where to place the retinas containing bioremediator organisms (mobile structures). Three long lines were created similar to those used in mussel farming, with lines alternating with floats, the first two floats of each long line were fixed to the dead bodies.

In the months of September and October, mobile structures containing macroalgae, sponges and polychaetes were positioned by the researchers of the three operative units of the project that worked simultaneously.
