Systematic Research of the Adriatic Sea as a Base for Sustainable Development of the Republic of Croatia Long-term goals: Systematic ecosystem research of the whole national marine territory, especially estuaries Strategic marine research to ensure compatibility between exploitation and protection of marine resources Development and application of new technologies Improvement and enlargement of cooperation between states and research projects Subprojects: Impact of anthropogenic activities on the Croatian coastal sea: pollutant loads from land-based sources (LBS) and through air, sanitary quality of beaches, sanitary quality of shellfish culture areas , effects of the excessive eutrophication , the level and the influence of pollution in selected areas (Ahot spots@), the mutual impact of fish mariculture and environment Management of biological resources and protection of biodiversity: degradation of ecologically and economically important areas, reduction of biological resources of commercially important species, protection of biodiversity Unusual phenomena threatening human health, tourism and fisheries: natural phenomena of unusual intensity, toxic phytoplankton species and undesirable blooms, introduction and excessive reproduction of exotic species, extreme high tides and coastal flooding Development of technologies and instruments needed for monitoring, use and protection of the Adriatic Sea
