PARLEMENT EUROPEEN - Réponse à question P-004889-16 Oil exploration and prospecting activities in the Algarve. As part of its work to implement Birds and Habitats Directives via the Natura 2000 network, Portugal has undertaken to ‘conserve habitats and populations of species on the basis of how the areas have been classified’ (Article 8(1) of Decree-Law 140/99).
Two of the contracts awarded in the past nine years in Portugal granting concession rights for the prospection, exploration, development and production of oil, (onshore — Algarve basin and ‘duas áreas’ in 2015), are being publicly contested by local authorities, regional organisations, citizens' movements and political parties. This partly attributable to the fact that the activities covered by these contracts may not be compatible with the obligations to preserve the environment or biodiversity in Natura 2000 network-protected areas in the Algarve. 1. Is the Commission aware of these contracts? 2. FOOD PAKAGING FORUM 07/06/16 Effects of microplastics on fish. In an article published on June 2, 2016 by The Washington Post, journalist Chelsea Harvey reports on a new study investigating the effects of microplastic polystyrene particles on the European perch (Perca fluviatilis).
The study was published in the peer-reviewed journal Science on June 3, 2016 and conducted by researchers Oona M. Lönnstedt and Peter Eklöv from Uppsala University, Sweden. Lönnstedt and Eklöv exposed perch eggs and larvae to water containing i) no microplastic particles, ii) a concentration of about 10,000 particles per m3 (average level observed on the Swedish coast), and iii) a concentration of about 80,000 particles per m3 (high level, also observed on the Swedish coast). Fish eggs exposed to microplastics had a lower hatch rate as compared to the controls. Hatched fish larvae exposed to microplastics were also smaller and less physically active as compared to non-exposed larvae.

Marine Policy Volume 60, October 2015, Pages 107–118 A proactive approach for maritime safety policy making for the Gulf of Finland: Seeking best practices. Open Access Highlights A regional proactive approach to maritime safety is needed in the Gulf of Finland.
Best practices are sought from the nuclear, fisheries, and maritime fields. The proposed framework sees maritime safety as a holistic system. The framework requires scientific risk assessment and stakeholder input. Abstract A rapid increase in maritime traffic together with challenging navigation conditions and a vulnerable ecosystem has evoked calls for improving maritime safety in the Gulf of Finland, the Baltic Sea.

The European Commission launched a review of the EU ICZM Recommendation , with a view to a follow-up proposal by the end of 2011. An impact assessment was conducted to explore the need and options for future EU action and to assess potential social, economic and environmental consequences that new initiatives proposed by the European Commission may have.

EUROPEAN ENVIRONMENT AGENCY - 2010 - Marine and coastal environment — SOER 2010 thematic assessment. Drivers and impacts The impacts on Europe's seas and coasts are driven by human activities such as fishing and aquaculture,land-based activities such as fertiliser and pesticide use in agriculture, chemical pollution from industries and shipping, and the exploitation of oil, gas and other resources.
Further negative factors include the introduction of alien species, marine litter, noise, urbanisation and tourism, and the destruction of habitats for ports and off‑shore structures. Many of these impacts are exacerbated by climate change. As a result, the ecosystem services provided by Europe's seas and coasts are deteriorating, including a decline in goods such as fish and recreational quality. Examples of impacts include the risk of ecosystem collapse (which has occurred in the Black and Baltic seas), toxic algae blooms, anoxic water (i.e. oxygen depleted), destruction of habitats, invasions of new species and chemical pollution of seafood.
