This article summarises the biodiversity
in the European Seas. It is based on reports (publish date: 31 may 2002) of the ‘European Environmental Agency’ (visited 31/08/2007)
), in which the marine biodiversity of each European sea is described in some detail. In the ‘EEA reports’ an overview is given of the most important physical, biological and exploitation characteristics, the main threats to biodiversity and the policies at work (nature protection and protection of marine resources by restrictions on fishing and hunting).The contents of these reports are shown together with an indication of the most relevant information.
