  • 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.

  • The objective of the Balthazar project was to assess the potential sources of nutrient loading from all types of large animal farms in the Kaliningrad and Leningrad regions and to perform risk assessment of nutrient leaching from the livestock farms into Baltic Sea. Report on large scale agricultural waste management activities: http://www.helcom.fi/stc/files/Publications/OtherPublications/agricultural_full_english.pdf

  • Screening activities for component Hazardous wastes on the Leningrad and Kaliningrad Region territories have been fulfilled within the BALTHAZAR project. The main goal of the Project BALTHAZAR is assistance in protection of the Baltic Sea from pollution through reducing of loading caused by agricultural entities (AE) and hazardous wastes. The component Hazardous wastes is focused on inventory of large landfills and estimation of current regime in hazardous wastes management. The main task of screening was to study impact of large landfills on environment of the Leningrad Oblast and Kaliningrad Oblast and to reveal the landfills causing the main loading on the Baltic Sea with pollutants.
