Highlights

  • This paper evaluates the implementation of the MSFD in the Adriatic Sea.

  • Ecological and jurisdictional boundaries overlap and cross-border cooperation is low.
  • Integrative assessments of marine systems may be impossible to achieve.
  • Relative isolation of theoretical approaches and management practices.
