about the Baltic Sea
The Baltic Sea is an inland sea in northeastern Europe. About 85 million people live on the coasts of the Baltic Sea, more than those of the North Sea, with just under 80 million. In the west, there is a natural exchange of water with the North Sea, which leads to a higher oxygen and salt content. For tourism, the sea is as significant as the North Sea, but can not compete with the importance of international shipping. The Baltic Sea is still an important area for fishing, but also for the extraction of resources such as oil or natural gas.
