Baltic algal bloom video

Algal blooms in the Baltic Sea, as shown in this video, are intensified when excess nutrients are deposited in the water and massively over stimulate growth.
The nutrients mostly come from unsustainable farming practices in the countries around the Baltic. The algae can make people and animals sick and severely damage the Baltic ecosystem.
