Exploitable results – Identification of Pressures in the Southern European Seas (SES) open and coastal waters in socio-economic terms - Gap Analysis on data and knowledge

Result description

Similar studies have been made for coastal areas and open waters of the Mediterranean and the Black Sea. This report presents the results of the economic and social analysis of the human activities which are exerting pressures on open waters of the Mediterranean and the Black Sea. The analysis has been done using existing available data on main marine activities such as fisheries, maritime transport, submarine cable and pipeline operations and marine hydrocarbon extraction. It makes the same analysis on marine coastal ecosystems of the Mediterranean and the Black Sea taking into account the main marine sectors such as fisheries and aquaculture, maritime transport and ports, recreational activities and coastal tourism, submarine cable and pipeline operations and marine hydrocarbon (oil and gas) extraction as well as on the main land-based activities impacting the coastal marine. The gap analysis in both open and coastal waters has shown that a significant part of required data to perform the economic and social assesment of human pressures assessments are missing or not publicly available, especially those needed to assess value added and employment wages as well as cost of degradation.
