  • Summary Estimated observations of the biotope AB.J2K7 were collected from the Baltic Sea area by expert judgements for HELCOM Red List of biotopes, habitats and biotope complexes. Description Baltic aphotic sand dominated by striped venus (Chamelea gallina)The HELCOM Red List of Baltic Sea underwater biotopes, habitats and biotope complexes (2013) is an updated and improved version of the Red List assessment of marine and coastal biotopes and biotope complexes published in 1998. The classification of the report follows the proposed International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) criteria and assessment principals but with some modifications for the Baltic Sea.Altogether, the HELCOM Underwater Biotope and habitat classification (HELCOM HUB) includes 209 biotopes of which 59 were red-listed. Many of the red-listed biotopes are located in deep areas of the Baltic Sea due to oxygen-free nature as well as in the southwestern Baltic Sea due to the salinity restricted distribution of species in certain biotope. The HELCOM assessment relies heavily on expert judgment and inference, and the questionnaire data represents the estimated presence-absence data not in-situ measured data. This must be taken in account when observing the map presentation. The biotopes are shown on the map using the EEA 100 km grid. This dataset displays estimated presence of AB.J2K7 according to HELCOM RED LIST assessment experts:The biotope is known to occur in the northern Kattegat in Swedish and Danish waters. The distribution map indicates the area in the 100 x 100 km grid where biotope is known to occur.(Data (expert judgements) collected in HELCOM RED LIST project, released in May 2013)

This dataset displays estimated presence of AA.H1B4, AA.I1B4, AA.J1B4 andAA.M1B4according to HELCOM RED LIST assessment experts:The Charales biotopes are distributed along the whole Baltic Sea coastline. The biotope covers largeareas in the comparatively large, shallow and sheltered erman Bodden areas, the Polish and LithuanianLagoons, the Latvian Bay ofRiga and Estonian, and along the coasts of Finland and Sweden especially inflads. The higher the salinities, the higher the diversity of the biotope withrespect to accompanyingplant species and inhabiting invertebrate and fishcommunities. The diversity of Charales and relatedgenera can howeverincrease with decreasing salinity, as the charophytes are brackish andfreshwatermacrophytes. The distribution map indicates the area in the 100 x100 km grid where biotope is knownto occur.AA.H1B4, AA.I1B4, AA.J1B4 andAA.M1B4have been placed in the Red List classification to the category of Near Threatened (NT) biotopes.

This dataset displays estimated presence of AA.E1C4according to HELCOM RED LIST assessment experts:The kelp biotopes are common from Kattegat to the Bornholm Basin. The spatial restriction to the Western and Southern Baltic Sea is due to the salinity requirements of the dominant kelp species.

  • This dataset reflects spatial distribution of nutrients load and load of selected hazardous substances on the Baltic Sea from land based sources. The data, obtained through national monitoring programmes in 2014, were reported by Contracting Parties to HELCOM in the frame of HELCOM PLC-6 project and collected in the HELCOM Pollution Load Compilation (PLC-water) database (http://apps.nest.su.se/helcom_plus/). The reporting was organized in accordance with the HELCOM Guidelines for the annual and periodical compilation and reporting of waterborne pollution inputs to the Baltic Sea (PLC-Water, http://www.helcom.fi/Lists/Publications/PLC-Water%20Guidelines.pdf). The dataset has been produced based on guidance by HELCOM PRESSURE and REDCORE Drafting Group. The dataset contains following attributes: Source code: unique code of the sub-catchment Name: sub-catchment name Sub-basin: Baltic Sea PLC sub-basin Country: country in the BS catchment area Monitoring: monitoring status Length: length of the sub-catchment Area: sub-catchment area Transboundary: sub-catchments with transboundary load

This dataset displays estimated presence of AB.A1J and AB.M1J according to HELCOM RED LIST assessment experts:The sponge biotopes are distributed along the whole Baltic Sea coastline. But as aphotic stony bottoms are scarce in the South-western and Southern Baltic Sea the biotopes are distributed mainly along the Swedish, Danish, Estonian and Finnish coastline or at some offshore reefs. The higher the salinities, the higher the diversity of the sponges and due to the more erect growth also the diversity of the inhabiting invertebrate and fish communities.
