2010 (English)Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
Baltic Survey includes about 9,000 interviews carried out in April-June 2010. It has identified how people around the Baltic Sea and parts of the Skagerrak use the sea and what attitudes they have towards the marine environment, and towards various measures for improving the environment.
Baltic Survey is a subproject within BalticSTERN research network. It is also a part of the research program Protection of the Baltic Sea: Benefits, Costs and Policy Instruments (PROBAPS). Funding for carrying out Baltic Survey has been received from the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency and the Finnish Advisory Board of Sectoral Research.
BalticSurvey serves three purposes:
1. To provide new facts on use and attitudes that are of importance in their own respect.
2. To give results that are of help for the design of forthcoming research on the benefits of marine environmental improvements.
3. To collect data that might allow the application of the travel cost method for estimating recreational values.
