  • Summary Observations of Phocoena phocoena were collected from the Baltic Sea area for HELCOM Red List species list. Description The HELCOM Red List of Baltic Sea species in danger of becoming extinct (2013) is the first threat assessment for Baltic Sea species that covers all marine mammals, fish, birds, macrophytes (aquatic plants), and benthic invertebrates, and follows the Red List criteria of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). Almost 2800 species were considered in the Red List assessment and about 1750 were evaluated according to the IUCN Red List criteria. Phocoena phocoena has two subpopulations that have been placed to different Red List categories. Baltic Sea subpopulation is in the category of Critically Endangered (CR) species whereas Western Baltic subpopulation belongs to the category of Vulnerable (VU) species.

Phoca vitulina vitulina has two subpopulations that have been placed to different Red List categories. Kalmarsund subpopulation is in the category of Vulnerable (VU) species whereas Southern Baltic subpopulation belongs to the category of Least Concern (LC) species

  • Observations of Halichoerus grypus were collected from the Baltic Sea area for HELCOM Red List species list. The HELCOM Red List of Baltic Sea species in danger of becoming extinct (2013) is the first threat assessment for Baltic Sea species that covers all marine mammals, fish, birds, macrophytes (aquatic plants), and benthic invertebrates, and follows the Red List criteria of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). Almost 2800 species were considered in the Red List assessment and about 1750 were evaluated according to the IUCN Red List criteria. Halichoerus grypus has been placed to the Red List category of Least Concern (LC) species. Grey seals are found on both sides of the North-Atlantic in temperate and sub-Arctic waters. The actual Baltic Sea population is distinct from the eastern North-Atlantic population.

  • This core indicator evaluates the state of the marine environment using distribution of the three species of seals that occur in the Baltic Sea. This dataset is for the Grey seal. Quantitative thresholds are used to evaluate if core indicators status is Good, Not good or Not assessed. The core indicator has three components for each species: distribution of haul-out sites, breeding sites and foraging areas. Good status is achieved when the distribution of seals is close to pristine conditions (e.g. 100 years ago), or where appropriate when currently available haul-out sites are occupied (modern baseline), and when no decrease in area of occupation occurs. The current evaluation covers the assessment period 2011-2015. This dataset displays the result of the indicator in HELCOM Assessment Scale 2 (Division of the Baltic Sea into 17 sub-basins). Attribute information: “SB_Code” = Code of the Helcom subbasin "Name" = Name of the Helcom scale 2 assessment unit "AREAKM2" = Area of the Helcom scale 2 assessment unit HELCOM_ID = Helcom id of the Helcom scale 2 assessment unit Status = Status of the indicator (“Good”, “Not good” or “Not assessed”)

  • This core indicator evaluates the state of the marine environment using distribution of the three species of seals that occur in the Baltic Sea. This dataset is for the Harbour seal. Quantitative thresholds are used to evaluate if core indicators status is Good, Not good or Not assessed.

  • This core indicator evaluates the status of the marine environment in terms of the nutritional status of seals measured as average blubber thickness of seal populations as it signals both long term and short-term changes in food supply and many other stressors for the seal populations. Good status is achieved when the subcutaneous blubber thickness is above the defined threshold value, which reflects good conditions. This dataset displays the result of the indicator in HELCOM Assessment Scale 1 (the entire Baltic Sea, without the Kattegat). Attribute information: "Assessment" = Name of assessment unit for the evaluation "Status" = Status of the indicator (“Achieve”, “Fail” or “Not assessed”) "Threshold value" = Threshold value (mm blubber thickness) "Specimen" = Specimen information "Indicator value" = Indicator value 2011-2016 "Confidence limit" = 95% confidence limit "Notes" = Additional information "AULEVEL" = Assessment unit level used for the indicator "Species" = Species Assessed

  • This core indicator evaluates the state of the marine environment using distribution of the three species of seals that occur in the Baltic Sea. This dataset is for the Ringed seal. Quantitative thresholds are used to evaluate if core indicators status is Good, Not good or Not assessed. The core indicator has three components for each species: distribution of haul-out sites, breeding sites and foraging areas. Good status is achieved when the distribution of seals is close to pristine conditions (e.g. 100 years ago), or where appropriate when currently available haul-out sites are occupied (modern baseline), and when no decrease in area of occupation occurs.
