Marine and coastal areas

Norway has large coastal and marine areas that are rich in species and ecosystems. Human activity and climate change threaten such biodiversity and create major challenges for the administration of these areas.

The environment protection authorities aim to ensure that the water quality in marine areas helps preserve species and ecosystems and also promote human health and well-being.
