The Baltic Sea – habitat in change

Ostsee

The Baltic Sea is the largest contiguous brackish sea on earth. Despite the extremely low salinity, the marine fauna has adapted to the hydrographic characteristics of the Baltic Sea over thousands of years. Based on one of its most important collections, in this permanent exhibition the Zoological Museum sets light on the diversity and change in the fauna of the Baltic Sea over the past 150 years.
In addition to permanent residents, the exhibition shows spectacular guests of the Baltic Sea, but also introduced species - from historical objects to recent research projects.
