Countries and Regional Seas

This section of WISE Marine is composed by two main part: Country Profiles provides links and information about their marine environment and activities related to the implementation of the MSFD. This includes the MSFD marine regions it is associated with, the extent (in square km) of its defined marine waters, the number of Marine Reporting Units, and also its MSFD Competent Authorities (CAs), notified under Art. 7. In developing their marine strategies, these countries use existing regional cooperation structures to coordinate among themselves and make every effort to synchronise their actions with those of third countries in the same region or sub-region.
