The Baltic is a brackish sea, a unique combination of freshwater from rivers in the surrounding countries and salt water from the ocean. The low salinity levels are one of the factors that determine which plants and animals can live there. The sea anemone Urticina feline, a member of the Cnidaria Phylum, is shown here.
