Report
Towards a
Joint Monitoring Programme
for the North Sea and Celtic Sea
Serge Scory (RBINS)
on behalf of
Lisette Enserink (RWS)
Key Figures
• Started 1st October 2013, duration 18
months
• 8 Member States + Norway
• 18 partners
• 1 M€ (77% funded by EU)
Main objectives
• Show benefits & challenges of joint monitoring in the
North Sea and the Celtic Sea:
– potential for multi-use of platforms (ships, planes,
buoys…)
– constructive network between institutions (fisheries
and environmental monitoring)
– planning and evaluation tools to enhance the
outcome of monitoring with regard to evaluation of
GES
• Resulting in increased efficiency & reduced costs
• With an eye on transferability to other (sub) regions:
North Sea and Celtic Sea and potentially beyond
Case studies – options for joint
monitoring
• Reacts to RSCs common indicators
• Elaborates logistics of improved integration
• Estimates cost-benefit compared to current monitoring
programmes/surveys
• Identifies hurdles and opportunities, both operational and
organisational/political
• End product supports operational implementation
Case studies - Topics
•
•
•
•
Eutrophication (chlorophyll)
Fish indicator
Benthos indicator
Multi-use of survey vessels
Part I: Inventory and analysis
• Activity A (CATALOG): To make an
inventory of current marine monitoring
programmes
• Activity B (MSFD COVER): To assess
current marine monitoring programmes for
MSFD
Part II: Integration
• Activity C (MULTI-DISCIPLINARY): To
assess the opportunities for
multidisciplinary marine monitoring
programmes
• Activity D (ACROSS STATES): To assess
the opportunities for joint planning and
joint monitoring across Member States
Part II: Integration (Cont’d)
• Activity E (TOOLS): To develop planning
and evaluation tools which will address the
required precision and spatial and
temporal resolution of integrated
monitoring
• Activity F (GAPS & NEEDS): To identify
emerging monitoring gaps and needs
Part III: Towards a joint monitoring
programme
• Activity G (NS/CS JMP): To compose a proposal
for a joint monitoring programme
Part IV: Communication &
Dissemination
• Activity H (MEETINGS):
• Activity I (WORKSHOP): international event
