On the 28th of January 2021 was held online the conference about Dangerous Shipwrecks.
LEAKAGES OF OIL and other hazardous substances FROM SHIPWRECKS are one of the potential threats to the marine environment. This problem concerns not only the Baltic region, but the whole world. The greatest potential threat is posed by ships sunk during World War I and II. This issue gives more and more causes for concern every day and is starting to be addressed more seriously in many regions of the world. According to the data held by the Naval Hydrographic Office in Gdynia, there are over 415 wrecks in Polish internal sea waters alone, of which about 100 are located in the Gulf of Gdańsk. And that is just the tip of the iceberg of the problem. At the MARE Foundation, we strive to implement measures to manage wrecks in Poland as soon as possible.
