Establishing Blue Belts with Marine Protection Areas
Creating a blue belt through the implementation of MPA's to create a rich, productive and bio diverse marine infrastructure
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
Exploring and piloting techniques to manage and monitor activities in MPA's to allow areas to recover and flourish for economic and environmental benefits
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.
