The MSP for Blue Growth study provides sector fiches for nine key maritime sectors listed below. The sector fiches are meant as a tool to investigate current and future potential spatial demands. 

The sector fiches deal mainly with the MSP dimension in the expected evolution of the analysed sectors, putting the focus not only on the present spatial needs of each of the sectors, but also on the anticipated future developments of the industry. At the same time, the fiches look at the interaction that exists among sectors, and offer a set of concrete recommendations to inform MSP processes. Finally, the fiches aim at being a solid first information source listing the most relevant actors, initiatives, and available literature in the sector in question.
