Summary

In this report, indicative insight is provided into the economic and ecological effects of four future spatial scenarios on the North Sea usage functions. For each of these scenarios, the annual effects on the various usage functions on the Dutch part of the North Sea are calculated or qualitatively described for the years 2017 and 2040/2050. The economic effects are calculated in terms of the annual direct and indirect production value, added value and employment (FTE). The ecological effects are expressed in terms of risk for species groups (seabirds, seals, porpoises and other cetaceans, bats, fish and reef-building species) and cumulative impacts for ecosystem components (birds, fish, marine mammals and habitats).
