  <dc:description>Component: 1.3.6. Establishing case studies on approaches to MSP implementation
Sub-component: CS#1 Assessment of concomitant pressures in the Bay of Biscay

The SIMNORAT case study “Bay of Biscay” aims to demonstrate the cross-border cooperation between Spain and France in a technical analysis to support implementation of maritime spatial planning (MSP). This case study draws perspectives on the evaluation of offshore anthropogenic pressures and their effects on cetaceans and seabirds.

These species are common in this area, have a high mobility and face multiple cross-border anthropogenic pressures. Furthermore, they are on the top of the marine food chain and are therefore good indicators of the global state of ecosystem.

Spanish-French collaboration was established to select, standardize and share relevant datasets (activities, pressures, ecological components) between the two countries and to carry out first cumulative effect assessment attempts.</dc:description>
