Monitoring the effects of recreational boating in the Waddenzee

Our action plan sets out measures to strengthen the balance between nature and recreation in the Waddenzee, primarily by promoting responsible boating. To determine the effect of the measures, we started a monitoring survey aimed at recreational boating and nature in the Waddenzee.

Find out how the behaviour of boaters affects the natural values of the Waddenzee in places where they cluster together and if the measures introduced will be effective.
