Therefore a risk of potential grounding or collisions is imminent. Organization the traffic by means of passive methods like determination the ships' routes or traffic separation schemes is one of the better measures to improve navigation safety. Although such activities should take into account interests of coastal countries. The whole area should be considered, and the needs arising from traffic at present and in the future should be met. Due to complexity of above problem, solutions that are fragmentary may lead to deterioration of existing situation and cause new threats for all Baltic countries.}, issn = {2083-6473}, publisher = {Gdynia Maritime University, Faculty of Navigation}, keywords = {Safety at Sea, Ships Routeing, Vessel Traffic Service (VTS), Baltic Sea, Polish Ports, Navigational Risk, Marine Traffic Engineering (MTE), Traffic Separation Scheme (TSS)} }
