Marine Protected Areas Map of the week - Marine Protected Areas

This map shows the ratio of Marine Protected Area (MPA) and terrestrial area for each European country. MPAs have been set up to protect vulnerable species and ecosystems, to conserve biodiversity and minimise extinction risk, to re-establish ecosystem integrity, to segregate uses to avoid user conflicts, and to enhance the productivity of fish and marine invertebrate populations.
