Project Details


The North Sea Agreement (NZA) lays down a roadmap for future spatial allocations in the Dutch Exclusive Economic Zone. The NZA (article 4.44) includes the following commitment: "Parties agree to nullify the existing restrictions in the Dutch part of the Plaice Box, with the exception of Borkumse Stenen. This means existing European agreements will need to revisited; this hence requires international dialogue"[2].

The ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality asked Wageningen Marine Research to advice on the ecological function and effectiveness of the PB including new insights since the last evaluation in 2009, and how to proceed to address potential knowledge gaps.
