Monitoring the Sea
This leaflet gives a brief presentation of who does what in Sweden's marine environmental monitoring.
To keep track of the health of the sea, we monitor the status of the Swedish marine environment. Many of us are involved in this key task. The Swedish Agency for Marine and Water Management is responsible at national level. Central government agencies monitor the sea within their respective fields. The coastal county administrative boards direct regional work. Municipalities, companies and individuals monitor the marine environment locally. Higher education institutions and various institutes carry out sampling and analysis, and provide research expertise.
