Abstract [en]

The current deliverable (D7.1.) aims to review the challenges of the established policies for providing a holistic ecosystem approach for management of the inter-linked environmental problems in the Baltic Sea Region.

Based on the review of the issues that are of major concern, as well as the recent scientific knowledge of the ecological coupling of eutrophication, changes in the food web structure and decline of the cod stocks (e.g. Mällman et al. 2008, Österblom et al. 2010), we decided to focus our analysis on the two inter-linked problems of eutrophication and cod fisheries.

In this report, we briefly describe the ecosystem of the Baltic Sea as well as the nature of these two environmental issues. We provide an overview of major environmental policies that are governing these two inter-linked problems. We also discuss the current challenges in the implementation of these established policies in the context of requirements for holistic ecosystem based management of the Baltic Sea.
