Non-navigational Uses of the Sea Space: The Baltic Sea Case
1 Gdynia Maritime University, Gdynia, Poland
ABSTRACT: Some parts of the global ocean, apart from their traditional use (maritime transport, fishery, navy), becomes suitable for other technical activities and investments (e.g. gas and electricity transmission, wind farms, gas and oil extraction, gravel extraction, coastal protection). These activities interact with marine environment as well as can interfere with navigation. This paper presents relating to the Baltic Sea large scale technical activities as well as points up their possible individual environmental effects.
