The size of the cod in the Baltic Sea has declined dramatically over the past 20 years, writes Dagens Nyheter (daily newspaper) according to new Swedish research published yesterday. Henrik Svedäng, associate professor at the Marine Research Laboratory in Lysekil, says to Dagens Nyheter that the fish certainly are many, but that they indicate deteriorating growth.
Algal bloom most often occur in the summer. This year, according to the algae prognosis from the Finnish Environment Institute’s Marine Research Centre, the risk of algal blooms along the Swedish east coast are high. The reason is that it is much phosphorus in the water, which can promote the blooming.
BalticSea2020 wants to congratulate Joakim Odelberg and Peter Juhlin for receiving the South Coast Water Association water conservation prize. The prize is awarded each year to reward commendable efforts and increased awareness which contributes to a sustainable marine environment along the south coast of Sweden. Odelberg and his team received the prize for their work against ghost nets in the Baltic Sea.
