Many coastal and offshore fish species in the Baltic Sea are strongly de-pendent on shallow and sheltered near-shore habitats for their spawning, nursery, feeding and migration. Still, the role of these essential fish habi-tats, EFH, for the development and support of fish stocks and communi-ties has received relatively little attention. As EFH in the Baltic often are found in the same parts of the coastal zone that are highly utilized and valued by humans, they are subjected to many threats and therefore man-agement needs are urgent. In addition, EFH provide and support im-portant ecosystem services and are included in national and international agreements and legislative acts as the Baltic Sea Action Plan, Habitats Di-rective and Marine Strategy Framework Directive. Despite this, the con-servation status of EFH is generally poor in the region. As a result of these shortcomings and needs, the Nordic Council of Ministers financed a project including a workshop with Baltic Sea experts with the aim to review the importance of, protection of and threats to coastal EFH in the Baltic Sea. This report describes the results of the pro-ject, primarily focusing on the outcome of the workshop.
