During the week of September 11th- 15th, partners of the ABAWARE project from Finland, Norway, Ireland, and Romania traveled to Aqauterra, Frasin. During this trip discussions took place on the basis of the project, various samples were taken from the fish-raising basins and the Branistea brook, and a trip was conducted in which the participants had the opportunity to admire the beauty of nature in Bucovina and to know a part of the history of this province. The trip was a great success with numerous important samples taken, and just as importantly, the various partners of the the project developed a working relationship. Special thanks has to be given to the Romanian partners of the project who organised the very successful trip. In particular, thanks must be given to Professor Nicolae Craciun, who made everyone feel very welcome.
