The Living North Sea project will solve problems surrounding the management of fish species which rely on moving between the North Sea and freshwater systems of partner countries. These species are under considerable threat, some even in hazardous decline.

Living North Sea brings together representatives from across the NSR country, in a project that which will make long lasting changes to the way that migratory fish species, whose stocks are shared between nations, are managed in the region. The project will create a permanent management group for migratory fish of these habitats which will continue to work collaboratively, but will also tackle decision making processes ensuring project results can be integrated in future policies on the national and EU level.
