What is the state of the Baltic Sea

The state of the Baltic Sea is being continuously monitored and assessments of the state and load of the sea are published in the form of reports, bulletins, indicators, reviews and various kinds of up-to-date information online.

Information for these publications is produced by SYKE in cooperation with other research institutions, authorities and non-profit organisations (such as the Finnish Meteorological Institute, the Natural Resources Instute Finland  (LUKE), the Geological Survey of Finland (GTK), Metsähallitus, the Finnish Food Safety Authority Evira, ELY Centres, and the Finnish Museum of Natural History).

This website compiles a comprehensive range of information about the state and load of the Baltic Sea and Finnish coastal waters. The information is based on the Finnish marine management monitoring programme. Its information sources include samples taken by research vessels, the observations produced by automatic monitoring equipment installed on trade vessels, satellite mappings, marine mammal and bird counts, measurements carried out by coastal regional environmental authorities and observations reported by citizens.
