Blue biotechnology and blue bioeconomy innovations

Blue biotechnology and blue bioeconomy innovations are seen as an ecological opportunity for future economic growth. This sector can also improve the sustainability and enhance the economic impacts of fishing and fish farming, as these industries contribute to the production of raw material for the needs of blue biotechnology. The Maritime Spatial Plan does not contain areas designated for these purposes or planning notations related to them, and the plan therefore does not have direct impacts on the operating conditions of blue biotechnology. It is possible that ports would be used in blue biotechnology activities. The plans related to ports are described in the section on maritime transport.
