Sustainable marine exploitation and protection

What is the effect of your (maritime) activities on marine and aquatic ecosystems and biodiversity? Wageningen Marine Research advises the government and the business community on the introduction and implementation of (new) policies, including a new EU Common Fisheries Policy, advice on TACs; Natura 2000, the Birds & Habitats Directive and the Marine Framework Directive. We also make environmental impact reports for our clients and provide advice on sustainable exploitation. In addition, we develop knowledge and techniques that make transitions possible, such as alternative fishing gear.
