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.

BaltGene communicates scientific results on genetic biodiversity in the Baltic Sea directly to stakeholders. The site presents genetic data on key species, including scientifically based advice for management and conservation of genetic biodiversity.

BaltGene website was produced by research project BONUS BAMBI, running 2014–2017. Information on the website is based on results from BONUS BAMBI, BONUS+ project BaltGene and Centre for Marine Evolutionary Biology CeMEB.

BaltGene web is financed by BONUS and FORMAS.
