Over the last decade, the accelerated transition towards cleaner means of producing energy has been clearly prioritised by the European Union through large-scale planned deployment of wind farms in the North Sea.
The Commission is in the process of updating some of the content on this website in light of the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union. If the site contains content that does not yet reflect the withdrawal of the United Kingdom, it is unintentional and will be addressed.
In its third edition, the EU Blue Economy Report continues to analyse the scope and size of the Blue Economy in the European Union.
The general objective of this study is to evaluate how MSP benefits specific blue economy sectors, with the aim to feed the results into relevant EU policies and Competent Authorities in charge of implementing Maritime Spatial Planning (MSP).
Marine spatial planning (MSP) in Europe is in a paradigm shift as all (coastal) European countries now have established practices for the production of marine spatial plans.
REVIEWS IN AQUACULTURE
Marine aquaculture is the most promising industry for ensuring future provision of seafood.
ATLAS - Understanding deep Atlantic Ecosystems
The document provides an inventory of deep-sea ecosystem services (as well as their Blue Growth potential) in various locations of the North Atlantic.
The report discusses the opportunities for engagement across and between regions to facilitate better understanding of marine planning and what it can achieve.
The report is the result of the NorthSEE project.
The study is developed within the framework of the SEANSE project with the aim to compare and analyse different criteria applied by the North Sea countries for planning their offshore wind farms, while considering environment and other sea uses.
