For a living Baltic Sea
BalticWaters always work for the best interests of the Baltic Sea. We adapt ourselves, without losing focus on where we are heading. Always in motion. Always from the perspective “what is best for the sea?”
BalticWaters is an independent foundation engaged in efforts to improve the Baltic Sea environment. The foundation conducts large-scale environmental projects with focus on action-oriented measures, and applied research to show which measures can contribute to a healthier sea and viable fish stocks. The projects are carried out on land, along the coast, and in the sea. BalticWaters also develops and disseminates knowledge about the Baltic Sea to the general public, governmental authorities, and decision-makers. The aim is to increase knowledge about the challenges facing the sea and build public opinion so that decisions are taken, and measures are implemented.
The need to protect the Baltic Sea’s ecosystem, biodiversity and natural resources has never been greater. At the same time, the need for new knowledge is critical. To create conditions for new research on reproduction and restocking of endangered fish species, the foundation BalticWaters is establishing a new fish research laboratory – the first of its kind in the Baltic Sea region.
