The Finland-Åland-Sweden (FI-AX-SE) Case comprises the waters between Sweden and mainland Finland, including the autonomous region of Åland with its archipelago. The area is part of the economically important axis from Stockholm towards Helsinki via Åland, but also includes cities around the Bothnian Sea. It is very busy with intense traffic going west-east between Finland, Åland and Sweden and also south-north from southern parts of Baltic Sea up to the northern parts of Gulf of Bothnia. Close to the coastline there is recreational fisheries and around Åland and in Southwestern Finland aquaculture is well developed. Coastal tourism is important, too.
