Any concentrations of hazardous substances exceeding EQS are unacceptable for marine organisms. \u000d\n In general, concentrations in European Seas were 'moderate' for cadmium, mercury, lead, hexachlorobenzene, DDT (dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane), polychlorinated biphenyls and benzo[a]pyrene. Both 'moderate' and 'high' concentrations of mercury exceeded the EQS and were found in a significant proportion of all seas.\u00a0 'High' concentrations for hexachlorobenzene and benzo[a]pyrene, exceeding the EQS particularly in the case of the latter, were also found across all seas. Concentrations of lindane (gamma-hexachlorocyclohexane) were 'high' in the Mediterranean sea and generally low elsewhere. \u000d\n Polychlorinated biphenyl levels appear to be decreasing in the North-East Atlantic Ocean. This suggests that policy measures and initiatives to decrease inputs of these substances\u00a0in the region have had\u00a0some success. For the remaining seven hazardous substances, it appears that the impact of abatement policies in this region might have\u00a0stabilised. \u000d\n Abatement policies for all eight hazardous substances have been in effect for the Baltic Sea, but no downward trends could be identified in the current assessment, indicating that the impact of such policies might have stabilised. \u000d\n Because of insufficient data coverage, a comprehensive assessment all eight hazardous substances for the Mediterranean Sea could not be conducted.\u00a0 Available data for this region indicates that policies to reduce pollution have had an impact 'though. \u000d\n The Black Sea is not included in this assessment due to lack of data. \u000d\n "@en <> "" "IND-165-en" "CSI049, MAR001" "aydinmus"@en

Oxygen depletion has also been observed in other European seas in recent decades. \u000d\n The primary cause of oxygen depletion is nutrient input from agricultural fertilisers, causing eutrophication.
