An origin of Baltic Sea knowledge

A lot of the knowledge we have about the Baltic Sea is linked to the Askö Laboratory in some way. Scientists from the whole world have studied the environment here, and it is also the place where substantial parts of the Swedish marine monitoring programmes were developed. For the past 50 years the bays around the field station have taught thousands of students field-research and knowledge about the Baltic Sea environment.
