Almost 100 million inhabitants in nine different countries live around the Baltic Sea. Today, the Baltic, one of the world's most sensitive waters, is faced with great challenges. Environmental problems, such as fertilizer run-off, the discharge of poisonous waste, endangered species of fish and algal bloom have increased. The transport of goods, above all of oil, puts at great risk the marine environment. The Baltic is one of the world's busiest sea ways.
