About the product

The waters of the Black Sea have supported a rich and diverse marine life. However, in recent decades the Black Sea has come under severe threat due to the combined impacts of eutrophication, anoxia, and chemical, biological and bacterial pollution. Focusing on Bulgaria, this publication presents an extraordinary testimony of the degradation of an important ecosystem. It also offers recommendations for the monitoring, protection and restoration of the biodiversity at the regional, national and local levels.
