Maarten de Jong is a marine ecologist and currently finishing his PhD project “Modelling the ecological potential of sand extraction”. The project is part of the EcoShape / Building with Nature programme and focusses on the short-term impacts of large-scale and deep sand extraction and ecological landscaping on organisms on the seabed, bottom fish and the change of sediment characteristics, bathymetry and hydrodynamics.
