Baltic bottoms in the photic zone with more than 10 %, but less than 90 % coverage of both hard and soft substrata. Perennial algae cover at least 10 % of the seabed and more than other perennial attached erect groups. Out of the perennial attached algae, Fucus spp. constitutesat least 50 % of the biovolume.
