In order to understand the needs for the uses of the Ocean and better plan its protection, we need to understand how the Azoreans use their Sea.


Through an extensive Coastal Ocean Mapping survey process, local knowledge will be integrated and valued in the decision-making process to implement a network of the Marine Protected Areas of the Azores.

Thank you to all who participated in the Coastal Ocean Mapping process. By participating in this survey, your answers are contributing the creation process and management of Azorean Marine Protected Areas.
