There are currently no cyanobacterial blooms in Finnish sea areas, which is typical for early summer. The cool weather has restrained blooms in inland waters also, and only one abundant cyanobacterial occurrence has been observed. Instead, pine pollen which to the naked eye resembles cyanobacteria, may occur in both the sea and in inland waters. More in Finnish
