As a result of the hot weather, water bodies have become warmer, which has led to an increase in cyanobacterial observations in sea areas. Cyanobacterial observations have become more common, especially in the Archipelago Sea and north of Gotland. Despite the exceptionally warm water in lakes, the cyanobacterial situation in inland waters has remained quite stable.
