Natura 2000 is a network of core breeding and resting sites for rare and threatened species, and some rare natural habitat types which are protected in their own right. It stretches across all 28 EU countries, both on land and at sea. The aim of the network is to ensure the long-term survival of Europe's most valuable and threatened species and habitats, listed under both the Birds Directive and the Habitats Directive.


Type Overview

Fishing Type Impact

The following table indicates the t/km2 catch on the basic settings of the game. Increasing or decreasing the fishing effort will result in increased impact on the following groups.
