The enviromental characteristics of the deep basins in the Baltic Sea and their impact on the occurrence of selected biota - benthos and fish communities - are described in chemical munitions dumping site areas. Results of the Nato -funded SfP project MODUM "Towards the Monitoring of Dumped Munitions Threat" (2013-2016) and other related previous activities regarding the impact of chemical warfare agents (CWA) on biodiversity and status of benthic fauna and regarding the health status of Baltic cod (Gadus morhua) are presented and discussed in the light of requirements for monitoring ecological risks associated with dumped CWA.
