Pan-European marine ecosystems
The large marine ecosystems (LMEs) project was created in support of the global objectives of Chapter 17 of Agenda 21, as a follow-up to the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED)
Out of the 64 LME defined worldwide, 13 are pertinent to the European environment. Numbering used in the map follows the one used in the LME project.
