Baltic pollution

Proposal to Restore Marine Environment

The Swedish government is going to earmark around 72 million US dollars over the next three years to help restore damaged Baltic and North Sea environments.

The plan, which will presented in next week’s Spring Budget, will include projects such as re-oxygenising seabeds and creating natural migration paths for various fish species.

There’ll also be increased efforts to intensify co-operation with other Baltic Sea states and Environment Minister Andreas Carlgren points to the spread of algae blooms as an example that previous measures haven’t gone far enough.
