A sea under pressure: Bottom trawling impacts in the Baltic

28 Sep 2020

The Baltic: A unique environment

The Baltic Sea is a semi-enclosed sea that connects people of nine nations: Denmark, Estonia, Latvia, Finland, Germany, Lithuania, Poland, Russia and Sweden. Around 15 million people live along the Baltic’s coastlines, while a further 75 million people in the region live inland.

This Story Map is part of the WWF Baltic Ecoregion Programme report: A sea under pressure: Bottom trawling impact in the Baltic, that serves as a call to action to Baltic Ministers and European Commission to intensify efforts of achieving Good Environmental Status of marine ecosystems in order to support a sustainable blue economy including sustainable fisheries. The report and story map was made possible thanks to a substantial contribution of funds from Monika Selkman, and technically supported by GRID-Arendal. This Story Map was produced by Louise Lieberknecht, Georgios Fylakis, Màrk Aguera, Torben Dedring, Hannah Griffiths Berggren, Valerie de Leidekerke and Ottilia Thoreson.
