When looked at on the scale of the world’s seas, the Baltic Sea is truly exceptional

The Baltic Sea is shallow, and its water is low-salinity brackish water, which has a significant impact on both its species and status. Although the status of the Baltic Sea has remained stable at the beginning of the 21st century, its improvement is still important for the preservation of its unique species and habitats. We must also be prepared well in advance for the variations brought about by climate change.
