The shores of the Baltic Sea reveal highly diverse
landscape scenery with coastal lagoons, shallow bays, extensive sandy beaches and many islands. Similarly, though hidden from sight beneath the surface, there is a unique and largely undiscovered world of flooded canyons, deep-sea mud basins, as well as rippled sandy plains with isolated rocky patches rising from the seafl oor—these are the marine landscapes of the Baltic Sea. The diversity of landscapes represents the range of living conditions available for the species and communities in the Baltic Sea. As such, a coherent marine landscape map is a fundamental tool for managing the biodiversity of the Baltic Sea marine ecosystem.
