SEASTOP developed small ports to raise the level of service and to attract visitors to small ports.
It was achieved through:
The project developed ca 300 new mooring places, sustainable water and sewage systems as well as other public facilities (toilets, showers, etc.). These investments helped the ports become attractive stops for visitors. In addition, the investments lead to improvements in the local environment and in some cases also accessibility to disabled was improved.

- Marketing and improvement of services
SEASTOP has successfully marketed the ports in fairs and helped to enable an increased cooperation between the ports. During the project a mobile application was developed for kids through which one can learn about the history of the archipelago. Each harbour has QR code to open this game.
The level of service in the ports have increased through the development of training videos and joint security plans.
The videos (in Swedish with Finnish and English subtitles) can be accessed here: https://seastop.se/filmer
