Intro to Blue Economy

The “Blue” in “Blue Economy” stands for the seas and oceans. As a vital component of Europe’s coastal economies, oceans can also contribute to our continent’s overall prosperity. They can produce investment, jobs and economic growth. The Blue Economy includes, among others, economic activities that are:

  • Marine based such as capture fisheries and aquaculture, ocean energy, shipping, maritime transport and maritime tourism
  • Marine related such as seafood processing, marine biotechnology, shipbuilding and repair, port activities and coastal tourism
