Diclofenac in the Baltic Sea

This report was written to support the update of the HELCOM Baltic Sea Action Plan (BSAP). The BSAP is a programme to restore good ecological status of the Baltic marine environment by 2021 and was adopted in 2007 by all the HELCOM Contracting Parties. The research address the thematic area “Hazardous substances” and provide background information that is relevant in the process of evaluating the efficiency of currently implemented measures, and for suggesting additional measures, needed to achieve good environmental status in the Baltic Sea.

Report 2/2018: Limitations of using blue mussel farms as a nutrient reduction measure

Blue mussel farming has been suggested as a cost effective nutrient mitigation tool in the Baltic Sea, to complement land-based measures. However, the environmental conditions of the Baltic proper, particularly the low salinity, affect the nutrient uptake efficiency of the blue mussels.
