This figure shows the 2012 aggregated assessment for 8 hazardous substances (or groups) in marine organisms in regional seas around Europe. It consists of eight maps showing available data for the Northeast Atlantic ocean, Baltic sea, Black Sea and Mediterranean sea; one map for each substance. Each map shows the locations where the substance was measured, and coloured to indicate which class was registered; green (Low concentration), yellow (Moderate concentration) or red (High concentration). In addition a pie chart is presented on the map showing the percent of each class within each of the four regional seas. Furthermore, any regional trend observed between 2003-2012 for a particular class is indicated by an arrow.
