About the Baltic Sea Science Center
The Baltic Sea Centre consists of exhibits, aquariums, classrooms and laboratories. In three large aquariums, visitors meet fish such as cod, turbot, sea trout, lumpfish, but also different types of plant life, and learn more about the marine environment. The educational rooms, which are primarily targeted at high school- and secondary school students, highlights four different environmental challenges - eutrophication, overfishing, pollution and depleted diversity, current research and future solutions. There is also space for classrooms and laboratories - a place for the next generation to create conditions for a healthier sea.

BSSC has been funded by BalticSea2020 and the foundation's founder Björn Carlson with support from Skansen. The content has been prepared in close collaboration with Stockholm University and the Swedish University of Agriculture.
