Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD) represents the pillar of European Union, which aim is „Good Environmental Status” (GES) in European marine waters by 2020. As is well known, the Black Sea is one of the most vulnerable regional seas and Romania and Bulgaria are the European Member States responsible for implementation of MSFD, in close collaboration with the other non-EU countries, Ukraine and Turkey.

Two-year project activities started in January 2019 to collect baseline data on the distribution/abundance of Black Sea cetacean populations, bycatch pressure, and to implement effective noise monitoring in the region.
