Maritime traffic effects on biodiversity in the Mediterranean Sea. Volume 1 : review of impacts, priority areas and mitigation measures

Abstract: 

An enclosed sea such as the Mediterranean is particularly susceptible to ship-associated impacts due to the high volume of shipping routes, long history of use, shallow sensitive habitats and sensitive deep-sea ecosystems. This report describes the potential effects of maritime traffic in the Mediterranean and recommends management and mitigation measures.
