The cyanobacterial situation is calm, with sporadic observations in lakes and sea areas

2021-06-10
In lakes, cyanobacterial observations are slightly up compared to last week, but abundant cyanobacterial blooms have not been observed. In the Finnish sea areas, some cyanobacterial observations have been made in the Archipelago Sea as well as on the coasts of the Gulf of Finland and the southern parts of the Bothnian Sea. Pollen that misleadingly resembles cyanobacteria occurs in places, both in lakes and in sea areas.”
