Criteria for Good Environmental Status of Sea Waters

The European Commission has adopted a decision outlining the criteria necessary to achieve good environmental status for Europe’s seas.

Member States now have to develop marine strategies which serve as action plans for applying an ecosystem-based approach to the management of human activities.
