    This paper summarises current knowledge of goods and services in the PolishExclusive Economic Zone of the Baltic Sea ecosystem. It reviews specific propertiesof the Baltic that could be used for economic valuation. Goods and servicesrange from the familiar resources of fish and minerals, which were valued withthe Productivity Method, to less obvious services provided by the ecosystem suchas biofiltration in coastal sands, valued with either the Replacement Cost orDamage Cost Avoided methods. Disservices to the marine ecosystem are alsoconsidered, e.g. erosion and coastal flooding, including the costs of planned mitigatingmeasures. This paper emphasises the importance of using valuation methodsto help make better-educated decisions for the sustainability of the Baltic Sea.
