  • First some words about the Bothnian Sea, our area of study.
  • Bothnian Sea: Locatedin the gulf of BothniaBetween Finland and SwedenPear shaped Narrower south and north.
  • 3D model made by our project partner. Swedish side: shallow area with sand banks. Finngrundet important for conservation and wind powerDepression from north to south ended in Ulvö deep, the deepest point is 200mline: EEZRed line: planning area (baseline + 1NM). Coastal current zone.
  • Beautiful place. I took this picture last summer in Åland, an island located in the south Bothnian Sea. The quality of the water is good compared to other parts of the Baltic Sea
  • The Bothnian Sea freezes every year.The north part is frozen 140 days/year in average. This has implications for maritime traffic.
  • Bothnian Sea is the most important area for HERRING fishery: 30% of total catches .Subdivisions according to ICES. Catches done mainly by trawl
  • Funded by DG MARE. Two phases: 1.- data collection and making of draft assessment (basis for the spatial plan)2.- elaboration of spatial plan.Short project: only 18 months
  • We want to make a maritime plan of the OFFSHORE area.Focus on:1.- transboundary cooperation: Finland and Sweden2.- Ecosystem (one of the HELCOM-VASAB principles)3.- test the applicability of the 10 EU MSP principles
  • People involved in the project
  • Where does the info come from? Our partners have gathered dataWe have made our own data (fishery, some background material like salinity, currents...)Importance of open regional databasese like HELCOM: it has helped a lot, specially in the beginning
  • Processing data:Deal with Different formatsDifferent projectionsData that can not be used/published.Important: METADATAIn general:Time consumingNot specially difficult process  similar formats; projection not a big deal - GIS software can trnasfor easilyWe have to live with copyright restrictions.
  • 130 datasets about:Marine trafficNature protectionWind areasFishery...Showing just an example of the maps that will make the assessment document  current status and data of the Bothnian Sea
  • Example of the analysis we starting: where are the conflicts? We overlap different layers. In this map we see a clear conflict between nature protection areas and areas suitable for wind power.
  • We have collected a lot of data and are learning about MSP. We don’t think is good to keep this info just for ourselves.
  • The reason we want to be open and transparent: we follow the HELCOM-VASAB recommendation
  • The website is the main gate to other services for spreading our knowledge
  • Recommnedation: subscribe
  • Map service essential:How much data do we haveWhat does it look likeYou can overlap layers  view several layers at the same time  analysisYou can download data
  • Let’s summarize.
  • Testing a MSPNot bindingOffshore area Finland and SwedenDemonstrate a model for cross-boundary MSPWhen finished: starting point for further development (hopefully)
  • We have succedded quite well collecting dataData comes from different sources. We have created also dataHELCOM data has been very useful.
  • Data is useful but we believe that if we share it it becomes more useful.
