Most of the interesting shipwrecks in the Baltic were accessible and in pristine condition, save for the damages that sent them to the bottom, when i got my scuba license
Nowadays, the only protection for a newly discovered shipwreck
is massive secrecy and immediate legal
protection, declaring the wreck off limits as soon as it's credentials are established. Even if that could be accomplished in just a few weeks, diving vultures sometimes manage to effect irreparable damage in the meantime.
