Norway

Norwegian Sea & North SeaNorway does not have a single plan for all of its EEZ, but rather breaks its EEZ into three regions: the Barents Sea, the Norwegian Sea, and the North Sea, that combined cover the entire Norwegian EEZ—2,385,000 km2.

The management plans for Norway’s marine areas establish the overall political and strategic framework and guidelines for management actions across economic sectors, and describe management actions to be implemented for the conservation and sustainable use of these areas.  The 2009 Nature Management Act and the 2009 Marine Resources Act provide the overall legal framework (purpose, goals, and principles) for the management of marine areas and the management actions  that must or may be implemented under the legislation.
