Field stories: working close to human pressures

This Summer the Metsähallitus marine team was working quite close to different kinds of human pressures. We worked most of the time close to the mainland, so we saw a lot more human activities then we normally do, from farther out at sea. In the earlier blogs there has been information about estimating human pressures and about the different kinds of trash we have found from the Bothnian Bay.
