The Baltic Sea is recovering

2015-11-25:

 

Thirtyfive years ago the Baltic Sea water was not allowed to swim in at some locations, due to contamination. Today that trend has turned for the first time in many decades.Even though there are still algal blooms and dead seafloors, the adding of nutrients from land to the Baltic is decimating. Those good news comes from a report of a study made by researcher from Sweden, Denmark and Finland. Daniel Conley at Department of Geology at Lund University, and a member of LUCCI, is one of the researchers.

- We can see that the water quality has improved in most parts of the Baltic Sea, he says to Hållbarhetsforum.

However at some parts near the seafloor the quality is still worsen, but overall sea sea is getting better.The study is outlining the over-fertilization in various parts of the Baltic between 1901 and 2012. (Source: www.hallbarhet.lu.se and www.su.se/ostersjocentrom)
