The European Atlas of the Seas

The European Atlas of the Seas is for anyone interested in the maritime world and our common maritime heritage. It was developed to raise awareness of Europe's oceans and seas, in the context of the EU's integrated maritime policy. The atlas offers a remarkably diverse range of information about Europe's seas including:

  • sea depth and underwater features
  • tide amplitude and coastal erosion
  • maritime policies and initiatives
  • fishing quotas per species and per zone
  • European fishing fleet
  • coastal activities 
  • maritime transport and ports statistics
  • outermost regions


We have selected interesting information that has been quality checked and is available across the EU. The atlas exists in English, French and German.
