Sabotage of Nord Stream pipelines may have affected Baltic cod stocks, the Swedish State Veterinary Institute (SVA) said in its recent analysis. After comparing fish caught near the leaks with those caught outside the affected area, the researchers noticed a possible side effect of exposure to methane, the main constituent of natural gas. oxygen in the water. Next spring, the SVA will follow up on the findings by including gill checks in the regular monitoring of the cod stock. In late September, four leaks were discovered on the Nord Stream 1 and 2 gas pipelines that ran between Russia and Germany across the Baltic Sea following what was later determined to be an act of industrial sabotage. Large amounts of methane poured out of the destroyed pipelines, and soon after the explosions levels were measured up to a thousand times higher than normal. Four months later, levels have dropped significantly. Later analysis by the University of Gothenburg showed that levels at the start of January were around five times higher than normal. alternative sources across the European Union. Germany, Denmark and Sweden have each launched separate investigations into the alleged sabotage, amid reported trust issues between the three EU countries. The Russian Prosecutor General’s Office has also opened an investigation into suspicions of international terrorism. According to Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova, the investigation into the terrorist attacks can only be considered reliable and objective if Moscow participates in the investigation. Zakharova. “Retaining the established facts irrefutably testifies to the obvious: the Swedish authorities are hiding something,” Zakharova concluded earlier in January.

The blasts, which have been investigated as an act of international terrorism in Russia, have disrupted deliveries of affordable gas to Germany ahead of the cold season, causing prices to spike massively and exacerbating the crisis energy in Europe.

Sabotage of Nord Stream pipelines may have affected Baltic cod stocks, the Swedish State Veterinary Institute (SVA) said in its recent analysis.

After comparing fish caught near the leaks with those caught outside the affected area, the researchers noticed a possible side effect of exposure to methane, the main constituent of natural gas.

“Cod sampled closest to discards have a higher incidence of some change in their gills. Similar but milder changes have been demonstrated in experimentally caused oxygen deficiency,” the acting state veterinarian said. Charlotte Axen in a press release.

According to the SVA, the sample for the analysis (a total of 29 fish) is too small for detailed conclusions, but discrepancies may nevertheless be caused by methane replacing oxygen in the water.

Next spring, the SVA will follow up the results by including gill checks in the regular monitoring of the cod stock.

Russia won’t allow ‘inconvenient’ truth about Nord Stream explosions to be ‘swept under the rug’

At the end of September, four leaks were discovered on the Nord Stream 1 and 2 gas pipelines that linked Russia to Germany across the Baltic Sea following what was later considered an act of industrial sabotage. Large amounts of methane poured out of the destroyed pipelines, and soon after the explosions levels were measured up to a thousand times higher than normal. Four months later, levels have dropped significantly. Later analysis by the University of Gothenburg showed that levels in early January were around five times higher than normal.

The explosions interrupted deliveries of affordable Russian gas to Europe ahead of the cold season, prompting a spike in gas prices and a rush to alternative sources across the European Union.

Germany, Denmark and Sweden have each launched separate investigations into the alleged sabotage, amid reported trust issues between the three EU countries. The Russian Prosecutor General’s Office has also opened an investigation into suspicions of international terrorism. According to Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova, the investigation into the terrorist attacks can only be considered reliable and objective if Moscow participates in the investigation.

However, Sweden notably refused to include Russia in its investigation or disclose its findings, prompting a harsh response from Zakharova. “Retain established facts irrefutable testimony to the obvious: the Swedish authorities are hiding somethingZakharova concluded earlier in January.
