Gulf of Gdańsk and Puck Bay

  • L. Kruk-Dowgiałło
  • A. Szaniawska
Part of the Ecological Studies book series (ECOLSTUD, volume 197)

Located on the shores of the Gulf of Gdańsk, the Tri-Cities agglomeration, which, in addition to other small towns, has a population of 760,000, is comprised of the port cities Gdańsk and Gdynia and the spa town of Sopot. The gulf is subjected to different rates of anthropogenic pressure and is extraordinarily interesting from a scientific point of view. Poland has recommended that two regions in this basin be declared Baltic Sea Protected Areas HELCOM BSPA: the Nadmorski Landscape Park and the Mierzeja Wiślana Landscape Park (Kruk-Dowgiałło et al. 2000a, 2000b). The western region of this basin was included in the NATURA 2000 network in 2004 (Fig. 7.1).
