Strategies for Remediation, Cost-Benefit Analyses and a Holistic Management Plan for the Baltic Sea

This chapter will present several scenarios, which are meant to focus on key problems related to sustainable Baltic Sea management. The last scenario will put many of the results in this book together and discuss a management plan for the Baltic Sea, which also includes a cost-benefit analysis. The first scenario is similar to the one presented by Håkanson and Bryhn (2008b). It concerns a strategy to find an “optimal” abatement plan to reduce the eutrophication of the Baltic Sea. Anthropogenic nutrient emissions have seriously altered the trophic state of the Baltic Sea, and our optimal strategy in Sect. 5.1 defines a goal for the remedial actions and presents a realistic avenue to reach that goal.
