Ecosystem based method for impact assessment (39142)

Project Details


The project aimed to develop a methodology for impact assessment and measures to support the implementation of the Marine Strategy Framework and Natura 2000.

The project included
- Development of an approach to impact assessment and step by step guide for management actions to ensure biodiversity, marine food webs and seabed integrity.
- A Case Study on the Dogger Bank to support the implementation of the Natura 2000 processes was evaluated and best practice identified.
- A Case study in the Kattegat with monitoring and ecosystem analysis of muddy habitats to optimize nature conservation and fisheries management under the Marine Strategy was evaluated and best practice identified.
- Development of cost-effective methods for management, monitoring and control in a report that describes the best practices in the subareas and the related costs.

The project was coordinated by DTU Aqua and funded by the Danish Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Fisheries and the European Fisheries Fund (EFF).
