Project Outcomes:

BalticSurvey is a subproject within BalticSTERN research network and the first study published from this international research network. This is a unique opinion poll conducted in all nine countries around the Baltic Sea. BalticSurvey includes about 9,000 interviews carried out in April-June 2010. It has identified how people around the Baltic Sea and parts of the Skagerrak use the sea and what attitudes they have towards the marine environment, and towards various measures for improving the environment.


BalticSurvey serves three purposes:

1. To provide new facts on use and attitudes that are of importance in their own respect.

2. To give results that are of help for the design of forthcoming research on the benefits of marine environmental improvements.

3. To collect data that might allow the application of the travel cost method for estimating recreational values.
