For the needs of a cultural heritage impact study carried out in 2010 by the Institute of Archaeolog y, two field surveys were conducted. On the island of Pag, the planned construction area of the navigable Town of Pag-Košljun Channel was surveyed. The channel enters Pag Bay near the historical nucleus of the town of Pag, built in the middle of the fifteenth century. Its continuation foresees the use of the existing salt pan channel. This passes directly by the ruins of the Old Town of Pag, which existed at this site until its inhabitants moved to its present-day position. Near the settlement of Košljun, the small Church of St. Lucy was identified, probably dating from late antiquity. The possible existence of the remains of the port of discharge of the Old Town in the Bay itself has been pointed out, as has that of underwater finds in the salt pan channel.

On the western slopes of Mount Učka, the area planned for the restoration of Vranja quarry was surveyed. It is situated in an area managed by the Učka Nature Park. A field survey has shown that no cultural goods are endangered by the planned intervention.
