Our oceans contain 97% of the world's water resources. Rich in biological diversity, they provide raw materials, food, and active agents in medicines. They keep energy reserves ready and serve as traffic routes as well as valuable recreational space. So the seas are extremely valuable in both economic and human terms. We as humans use the seas extensively, but we don't do enough to protect them. Our aim at SIEL59 is to contribute to protecting the marine ecosystem while also securing the potential for their sustainable use. This applies as much to the world at large as it does to our small piece of it on the North Sea with the Wadden Sea, an extremely important ecosystem.
By the way, you can also experience the Wadden Sea for yourself on one of our Wadden excursions.
This is one major reason for our partnership with the Wadden Sea National Park.
We take responsibility.
Good to know: '59 is also the year Schlüttsiel harbour was founded.
Moin! That's me. I met the light of day on the coast in 1992, walked to school on the land between the seas, and trained as a chef. I've been firmly anchored in the North ever since. With one small exception, extending and honing my cooking skills for a year as a cook in Australia . I look forward to seeing you.
Come and join the crew at SIEL59! We look forward to meeting you in person. Click here for our current vacancies...Our job offers
That’s the spirit of the sea and the soul of SIEL59.
In practical terms, this also makes dyke protection so much more important. The Schlüttsiel dyke will be undergoing a reinforcement project from April 2023. This inevitably means that there will be construction noise, at least during the day. You’ll still be sleeping to the sound of the waves from nightfall.
