This report is the result of work conducted by the Plan Bleu as part of the economic and social analysis of the ECAP project (Ecosystem Approach for the Management of human activities) coordinated by the Coordinating Unit of the MAP.

It aims to contribute to the Mediterranean Initial Integrated Assessment (IIA) and to complement it with a broader in-depth socioeconomic analysis of key economic activities taking part in or closely related to the Mediterranean marine and coastal environments.

Fisheries, aquaculture, tourism and recreational activities, maritime transport and offshore exploitation of oil and gas are analysed at the scale of the Mediterranean basin as well as at a sub-regional level, fitting Mediterranean sub-basins.

This work has also led to the development of another report entitled “Scoping study for the assessment of the costs of degradation of the Mediterranean marine ecosystems“.
