  • This dataset contains all PBDE in seawater monitoring station locationsas reported to HELCOM secretariat by HELCOM Contracting Parties by 2016.

  • This dataset contains all PBDE in biota monitoring station locations, observed matrix, biota matrix and monitored species as reported to HELCOM secretariat by HELCOM Contracting Parties by 2016.

  • The occurrence of suitable nursery habitats is crucial for maintaining fish populations (Sundblad et al. 2013). Species distribution modelling studies have shown the importance of suitable environmental conditions for pikeperch recruitment. Due to lack of coherent data on pikeperch spawning and nursery areas across the Baltic Sea countries, environmental variables were used in delineating potential recruitment areas for pikeperch. The pikeperch recruitment area presented on the map is mainly delineated by selecting areas where depth < 5 m, logged exposure < 5, salinity < 7 PSU, Secchi depth < 2 m and distance to deep (10m) water < 4km. The threshold values have been obtained from literature (Veneranta et al. 2011, Bergström et al. 2013, Sundblad et al. 2013, Kallasvuo et al. 2016). Temperature, although important for pikeperch, was left out due to high variation in timing of suitable spawning temperatures across the Baltic Sea. In Finnish coastal waters, a national pikeperch model (Kallasvuo et al. 2016) has been used, with very suitable areas for pikeperch generalized to 1 km grid. In Sweden, the areas delineated by environmental variables have been complemented with information from national interview survey (Gunnartz et al. 2011) as well as expert opinion.

  • This dataset contains all dioxins in sediments monitoring station locations as reported to HELCOM secretariat by HELCOM Contracting Parties by 2016.

  • This dataset contains all heavy dioxins in biota monitoring station locations, observed matrix, biota matrix and monitored species as reported to HELCOM secretariat by HELCOM Contracting Parties by 2016.

  • This dataset contains all TBT in biota monitoring station locations, observed matrix, biota matrix and monitored species as reported to HELCOM secretariat by HELCOM Contracting Parties by 2016.

  • Data of fish farming facilities along the Baltic coast. Annual and average finfish production and nutrient load (total phosphorus and total nitrogen) is given, if known. The data was made available by HELCOM Contracting Parties in response to data request. The data was received from Denmark, Finland, Germany and Sweden. The activity was declared as not relevant for Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland, thus there is no activity within those Contracting Parties. No data received from Russia. Nutrient inputs from fish farms in Denmark are calculated on the basis of production data. From Germany only the locations for the fish farming facilities are given. Information on the annual production and nutrient loads are confidential for reasons of competition and not accessible. Some numbers that were missing on nutrient input in Sweden have been calculated by SCB, Statistics Sweden (red numbers) based on average input/ amount produced fish. No exact area (km2) of the finfish mariculture was available, hence an estimate is given if been possible to calculate. Attribute specification and units: X_ETRS89: X coordinate point Y_ETRS89: Y coordinate point Subbasin: Baltic Sea sub basin Country: Country id (DK = Denmark, FI = Finland, SE = Sweden) County: County Name: Name of the fish farming company Comments: Notes regarding the data Area: Estimated area (km2) of finfish mariculture (value is given, if information was available) Pr_Sum_ton: Total (Sum) production in tonnes Pr_Av_ton: Average production (tonnes)/year P_Sum_ton: Total phosphorus load in tonnes P_Av_ton: Average phosphorus load (tonnes)/year N_Sum_ton: Total nitrogen load in tonnes N_Av_ton: Average nitrogen load (tonnes)/year Pr2011_ton – Pr2015_ton: Annual production (tonnes/year) P_2011_kg – P_2015_Kg: Annual phosphorus loading in kilograms (Kg P / year) N_2011_kg – N_2015_Kg: Annual nitrogen loading in kilograms (Kg N / year)

  • Submarine structures made by leaking gases (according to Habitats Directive Annex I) are also known as “bubbling reefs”. These formations support a zonation of diverse benthic communities consisting of algae and/or invertebrate specialists of hard marine substrates different to that of the surrounding habitat. The distribution map is based on data submission by HELCOM contracting parties. Only Sweden and Denmark reported occurrences of submarine structures made by leaking gases.

  • Data for Furcellaria harvesting presenting the amount of dredged tonnes per unit area per year. The data was made available by HELCOM Contracting Parties in response to data request. The data was received from Estonia. The activity was declared as not relevant in Denmark, Germany, Finland, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Russia and Sweden. Attribute specification and units: Dredged_ar: Furcellaria dredging area (km2, ND = no data available) Area: Area (fishing area) within dredging occurs (km2), area do not represent actual dredging area. 2011 - 2015: Amount of dredged Furcellaria (tonnes / year) Total: Amount (Sum) of dredged Furcellaria during 2011-2015 (tonnes) Average: Calculated annual average of the amount of dredged Furcellaria (tonnes/year)

  • This dataset contains point data describing the location of oil platforms in the Baltic Sea. The dataset is complete in Baltic sea coverage as it contains two known oil platforms.
