Environmental quality criteria – Coasts and Seas

This report is a tool for determining the environmental quality of the marine environment in terms of three threats to the environment: eutrophication, toxic organic pollutants/metals and physical disturbance (exploitation of the coast).

The purpose of this report is to enable local and regional authorities and others to make accurate assessments of environmental quality on the basis of available data on the state of the environment and thus obtain a better basis for environmental planning and management by objectives.
