The information on Finnish marine litter and microplastics can be found in the Overview on Finnish research made by Tuuli Teittinen 8/2017, Ministry of Environment.
Marine litter and microplastics are relatively new topics in Finnish research. The Finnish Environment Institute SYKE is the leader of the research on marine litter and microplastics in Finland. SYKE does research on the amount and distribution of marine litter and microplastics, their effects in the Baltic Sea as well as the sources and transport routes of litter to the sea. SYKE also develops measures to reduce marine littering.
