The cyanobacterial situation has calmed down, small amounts of cyanobacteria in lakes and sea areas

The cyanobacterial situation has calmed down both in inland waters and sea areas. Almost all cyanobacterial observations concern small amounts of cyanobacteria. In lakes, storm Riikka stirred up the surface waters which caused the blue-green algae to be mixed with the water mass. In the coastal areas of the Baltic Sea there are now considerably smaller amounts of cyanobacteria, in places due to mixing with the water mass.
