Underwater archaeological finds and relevant legislation

The National Board of Antiquities is responsible for the protection, research, upkeep, and restoring of underwater archaeological sites. Wrecks over one hundred years old, including objects and parts of the wrecks, as well as other old man-made structures, are considered underwater archaeological sites. Such sites are protected by law. Archaeological sites are reminders of Finland’s past history and culture. Any unauthorised trespassing on such sites is punishable by law. Best way to show your respect for the Finnish maritime heritage is to avoid doing any sort of damage to the wreck.
