The diversity of Europe’s regional seas

Marine climate change impacts European Seas Global Ocean

Clean and undisturbed seas?

Marine knowledge: towards a baseline • Reporting under the MSFD shows that less than 20% of biodiversity features reported on are considered in Good Environmental Status. • 70% of the marine species assessments and 40% of the marine habitats assessments were considered unknown in 2008. • Half of all fish landings in the European Atlantic and Baltic waters come from stocks that are not assessed. • The EEA is supporting the development of a European marine baseline as part of the information system WISEMarine.

Ensuring sustainable use of the seas Short sea shipping up 100% by 2050 Growth in maritime monitoring and surveillance Offshore wind: annual growth rate 21.7% Cruise tourism: 12% annual growth rate Fisheries: 25% decline since 1993, potential to reverse trend and rebuild fish stocks

Marine LitterWatch At present, there are insufficient data to properly assess the problem of marine litter. Citizens can play a major role in enriching the data and information needed to support marine litter management and prevention. The Marine LitterWatch app combines citizen engagement and modern technology to help tackle the problem of marine litter.
