Algal bloom monitoring July 30, 2015: Amount of cyanobacteria has increased in lake and sea areas

Press release 2015-07-30 at 12:30

In the lakes, amount of cyanobacteria has increased. Still, cyanobacteria have been reported less from lakes than usually in late July. Cyanobacterial surface bloom has been observed in the Bothnian Sea, but otherwise wind has prevented cyanobacteria to form surface accumulations in the Finnish open sea areas. More in Finnish
