MOSES featured in Basque Maritime


The December 2020 edition of Basque maritime, published by MOSES partner Foro Maritimo Vasco, featured an article about the impact index of the blue economy on the marine environment prepared by MOSES project partners.

This study is an initial attempt to construct an index based on a set of indicators that have the potential to assess the accumulative impacts of human maritime activities in the Atlantic Area of the European Union. The index includes the assessment of the blue economy (economic indicators such as income or the gross added value, social ones such as employment and, other physical variables, for example, the tons of product unloaded) for each of the activities in question. The index will provide tests of how the size of the different sectors measured by their contribution to the blue economy can impact the green component of the ecosystem.

The article is on page 16 and can be accessed at this link.

Throughout the document, there are many news stories about the marine industry in the Basque region.
