New COEXIST project website and Publication
The new COEXIST project website was launched 20 August 2013. It contains a general project description and all the outputs and deliverables obtained within the project, which are now available for all interested stakeholders and the wider public.
The COEXIST project results are now summarised in the Guidance on a Better Integration of Aquaculture, Fisheries, and other Activities in the Coastal Zone: from tools to practical examples. This guidance document provides a comprehensive assessment of the conflicts and synergies between fisheries, aquaculture and other activities in the coastal zone in the six COEXIST case study areas. This document also accounts for the views and expectations of stakeholders that were raised at the COEXIST stakeholder workshop held in Bergen, Norway, parallel to the ICES (International Council for the Exploration of the Sea) Annual Science Conference 2012.
COEXIST was an EU Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) multidisciplinary project which aimed to provide a roadmap for achieving better integration, sustainability and synergies across the diverse activities now taking place in the European coastal zone. The project ended on 30 June 2013, but a shared session on the project will be held in the next Annual Scientific Conference of the ICES in September 2013.
