Maritime spatial planning themes

Maritime spatial planning examines the needs of different uses and strives to coordinate them.

In accordance with the Land Use and Building Act, the review will focus particularly on the following sectors: energy, maritime transport, fisheries and aquaculture, tourism, recreational use, and conservation, protection and improvement of the environment and nature. Cultural heritage, the mining sector, blue biotechnology and the maritime industry have also been identified as essential themes with regard to planning.

Another focus will be national security needs, the characteristics of the marine area and interaction between the land and sea.
