Executive Summary

This report presents a brief overview of ecologically or economically important species of different habitats and trophic levels in the Baltic. It supplies the modeling groups within BIO C3 with species specific information on environmental tolerances and preferences and identifies some gaps in knowledge. Where possible, information was provided on the distribution of species in relation to depth, salinity, temperature and oxygen concentrations, in some cases supplemented with experimental results. The species were chosen according to their ecological or economic importance for the Baltic Sea and their relevance for modeling tasks in BIO-C3.
