Between Two Worlds

In this part of the Baltic, you notice the connection between the land and sea, fresh and salt water, best. A brackish environment, the most common species here are those typically found in lakes and rivers, albeit for a few bivalves, saltwater fish and marine algae.

Foxes and minks lurk about the rocky coast and the plants seem to crawl onto the land. The low horizon makes it difficult to discern where the water ends and land begins or telling apart a lake from the sea.

Today, we encountered representatives from both freshwater and marine environments, namely pike (Exos lucio), ruffes (Gymnocephalus cernua) alongside ninespine sticklebacks (Pungitius pungitius) and gobies (Pomatoschistus sp.).
