Science dimensions of an Ecosystem Approach to Management of Biotic Ocean Resources (SEAMBOR)
ESF Marine Board Position Paper 14
Optional Fields
This report on the science requirements for an Ecosystem Approach (EA) and Integrated Management of Biotic Ocean Resources (BORs) has a central organizing theme and a unique identity, giving equal attention to the science needed to understand the natural system, the social system, and the governance system. It is these three systems, functioning in a coherent and integrated manner, which will allow the European Union to apply Integrated Management within an Ecosystem Approach to achieve Good Environmental Status (GES), as required by the Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD). This report lays out the science needed to support these efforts, and to make human activities in the seas ecologically, economically, and socially sustainable.
