Why we should care about genetic biodiversity in the Baltic Sea

Pollution, overfishing and climate change impose severe challenges for the Baltic Sea. A wide pool of genetic diversity can provide possibilities for species to adapt and ensure important ecosystems to function in the future. It is time to make genetic biodiversity be part of Baltic Sea management and conservation.
