SOER Message Marine and coastal environment — key message 2
Nutrient enrichment is a major problem in the coastal and marine environment, where it accelerates the growth of phytoplankton and can lead to oxygen depletion. Concentrations of some heavy metals and persistent organic contaminants in marine biota exceed food stuff limits in all Europe’s seas.

SOER Message Marine and coastal environment — key message 5
Designation of coastal and marine sites as part of Natura 2000, although improving, has been slow and difficult. The conservation status of some coastal and most marine habitats still needs to be assessed, while 22 % of marine mammals are threatened with extinction. The available data suggest that the objective of halting biodiversity loss by 2010 has not been met.

SOER Message Marine and coastal environment — key message 1
Degradation of marine and coastal ecosystems is observed in the Black, Mediterranean, Baltic, North East Atlantic Seas and in the Arctic. This trend is caused by fishing, agriculture, the industrial use of chemicals, tourist development, shipping, energy exploitation and other maritime activities. Projected climate change is likely to increase the impact of these activities in all seas, and in the Arctic

SOER Message Marine and coastal environment — key message 7
Growth of the maritime, agriculture and tourism sectors is expected to continue. An important future objective for the Marine Strategy Framework Directive will be to ensure that this growth is sustainable to achieve and then maintain ‘Good Environmental Status’ of the marine environment. Moreover, it will be necessary to implement planning principles in line with the approaches of Integrated Coastal Zone Management and Maritime Spatial Planning.

Figure Trends per station in dissolved inorganic nitrogen (DIN) concentrations in European seas
Stations showing a statistically significant decrease (green), increase (red) or no trend (grey) of winter dissolved inorganic nitrogen (DIN) concentrations within the period 1985-2012. Selected stations must have at least data in the period 2007-2012 and at least 5 years data in all.

Figure Hazardous substances in marine organisms in European seas
This figure shows the 2012 aggregated assessment for 8 hazardous substances (or groups) in marine organisms in regional seas around Europe. It consists of eight maps showing available data for the Northeast Atlantic ocean, Baltic sea, Black Sea and Mediterranean sea; one map for each substance. Each map shows the locations where the substance was measured, and coloured to indicate which class was registered; green (Low concentration), yellow (Moderate concentration) or red (High concentration). In addition a pie chart is presented on the map showing the percent of each class within each of the four regional seas. Furthermore, any regional trend observed between 2003-2012 for a particular class is indicated by an arrow.

Figure Observed changes in winter orthophosphate (PO4) concentrations, 1985–2010
The map shows stations with a statistically significant decrease (green), increase (red) or no trend (yellow) in winter ortophosphate concentrationswithin the period 1985-2010. Selected stations must have at least data in the period from 2007 to present and at least 5 years data in all.
