The following submission includes comments on the draft measures in addition to measures which SWAN proposes should be taken in order to achieve the requirements of the Marine Strategy Framework Directive in Ireland. These comprise both specific MSFD implementation recommendations, in addition to broader recommendations aimed at setting in place the integrated governance framework necessary for the Directive’s successful implementation. That framework would facilitate the implementation of the appropriate concrete measures which are required in order to protect the marine environment, meet MSFD targets and secure the marine resource-base.
