In the area of protection, we determine the impact of pressures on the individual elements of the environmental state pursuant to the requirements of the Marine Strategy Framework Directive and prepare expert bases for assessing the hydromorphological pressures (for coastal waters and lakes). We prepare expert bases and methodologies for waste pollution management, for assessing the individual elements of the environmental state with regard to coastal waste and micro-plastics pollution in water and for content linked to managing the impact of underwater noise on the marine environment.
