Marine fauna and flora carry out many ecosystem functions. In anthropocentric terms the fauna and flora provide commodities or goods, such as fish, shellfish and alginates, as well as services such as water cleansing and purification and enhancement of tourism. The goods and services which marine biodiversity provides across Europe need to be fully identified, including the non-use benefits. The workshop output will be a review publication, and will feed directly into the research in Theme 3 to determine the total economic value of marine biodiversity. An understanding of the goods and services provided by marine biodiversity is important in developing management tools for marine ecosystems.
