Sweden has inaugurated its first marine national park on its west coast, near the Norwegian border. Both Carl XVI Gustaf, King of Sweden, and Haakon, Crown Prince of Norway, inaugurated the park at Kosterhavet, 150 km north of Göteborg.
   Marine life at Kosterhavet includes species found nowhere else in Swedish waters, and is a noted tourist destination. It is also an important source of in-shore fishery.
   The national park aims to protect and maintain the natural and economic wealth of the area.
   The above video includes views of the area and from the ceremony.
