The purpose of the joint workshop is to consider existing knowledge regarding essential fish habitats at the Baltic Sea regional scale, and how remaining gaps could be filled. The workshop will discuss and validate existing spatial data on essential fish habitats based on proposals collated within the Pan Baltic Scope project. It is organised back-to-back with a Pan Baltic Scope Green infrastructure workshop, in cooperation with HELCOM State and Conservation and HELCOM Fish Working Groups (Essential Fish Habitats).
The workshop is open to nominated experts from Contracting Parties, partners of the Pan Baltic Scope project, and invited experts on Baltic Sea essential fish habitats. Instructions for workshop registration will be sent out separately to the nominated attendees.
Pan Baltic Scope is also organising a workshop on economic and social analyses in MSP in Helsinki, Finland on 13 December. More information here.
