Central Aim

Creating a blue belt through the implementation of MPA's to create a rich, productive and bio diverse marine infrastructure

Project Description

We would like to work with partners to design and implement a management system and plan for newly created MPA's to monitor dredging, bottom trawling and pulse fishing

Envisaged Output

Exploring and piloting techniques to manage and monitor activities in MPA's to allow areas to recover and flourish for economic and environmental benefits

What is the need for this project?

MPA management plans are not yet designed and this will allow EU North sea nations to pilot techniques to benefit other areas.  We need to make sure this is a sound and implementable system, enabling data and research to be used productively for economic, social and ecological benefits for all stakeholders.
