organisation profile

The Swedish Agency for Marine and Water Management, SwAM, is a government agency that works for flourishing seas, lakes and streams for the benefit and enjoyment of all.

We are responsible for managing the use and preventing the overuse of Sweden's marine and freshwater environments. We take into consideration the requirements of the ecosystem and people, both now and in the future.

We do this by gathering knowledge, planning, and making decisions about actions to improve the environment. To be successful in these efforts, we coordinate and establish our efforts among everyone involved, both nationally and internationally.

Good Decisions are Based Upon Sound Knowledge

Based on Swedish and international research, we take responsibility for planning and managing marine and fresh water resources. We commission research from universities and colleges which house expertise. Together with the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency and other research funders, we make sure that government research grants also benefit marine and freshwater environments.

We commission test fishing, extractions of water samples, and other surveys to monitor the state of Sweden's oceans, lakes and streams. Based on results from these activities, we produce analyses, evaluations and reports.

We ensure that our knowledge reaches the public, stakeholders, and public authorities so that the information comes to good use wherever it is needed.
