Lighter meals for fish in the northern Baltic Sea
Description: The nutrition available for fish in the northern Baltic Sea has become lighter during the past 30 years. The amount of energy available for planktivorous organisms has declined after the late 1970s, as both the food quality of phytoplankton and the mean size of zooplankton have decreased. The observed change is probably due to complex interactions between climate warming, eutrophication and overfishing. [Source: SYKE (Finnish Environment Institute)]
