New EEA publication entitled "Marine messages"
A new European Environment Agency publication on the current state-of-affairs of European seas and their usage was released in the 20th of February in line with the Sea For Society aim of developing and enrich the concept of Blue Society as a basis for improved governance of the Oceans.

 

    

The European seas are home to a rich and diverse array of species, habitats and ecosystems. Although vital for Europe's economic and social wellbeing, many of these ecosystems risk being irreversibly damaged by human activities. "Marine messages", a briefing from the European Environment Agency (EEA), provides an overview of the current state-of-affairs of European seas and the use of them. It argues that economic activities including transport, fishing, offshore energy and tourism should be better managed so that they ensure sustainable health of marine ecosystems.
