The IH-MSP Platform is the GIS platform which facilitates the implementation of maritime spatial planning in Spain. It focuses on the spatial potentials of offshore aquaculture and wind energy.
This document, produced within the context of the Pharos4MPAs project, aims to explore how Marine Protected Areas could be affected by aquaculture, and provides a set of practical recommendations to avoid or minimise its environmental impacts.
This report was developed by the EU Horizon 2020 project AquaSpace to describe a targeted review of tools and methods that can be used for the spatial allocation of aquaculture activities in terms of environmental and economic costs (e.g.
