Cyanobacterial observations have increased in both lakes and sea areas; the situation is typical for the late summer

2021-07-29
Larger amounts of cyanobacteria have been observed in inland waters than in the previous week. The observations are concentrated in eutrophic lakes and bays in the southern parts of Finland. Cyanobacterial blooms have become more abundant along the coast and in the Archipelago Sea. In the open sea, significant cyanobacterial rafts have only been observed in the Bothnian Sea and in the western parts of the Gulf of Finland.
