This project was aimed to support stakeholders in understanding the requirements and implementing the MSFD in the Celtic Seas, one of the sub regions of the North East Atlantic Regional Sea. There were two parts to this work:

1) Identification and provision of a detailed list of specific information needs through engagement with key economic maritime sectors and sea users and

2) Sourcing information on mechanisms, measures and initiatives to deliver GES.  

Objective  to identify information needs in support of GES for the Celtic Seas Partnership web portal as a resource for sea-users and interest groups, governments and scientists who want to know what information and data are available in relation to the MSFD descriptors in the Celtic Seas and how this can be used to deliver measures to achieve the Directive’s goal of ‘Good Environmental Status'.  The Celtic-Seas is a sub-region identified under the MSFD
