The European Atlas of the Seas ( is the ideal tool for schools, researchers and professionals, or anyone wishing to know more about the European seas and its coastal areas.

An initiative of the Directorate General for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries (DG MARE) of the European Commission, the Atlas is a digital interactive learning tool that provides information about Europe’s marine environment in the 24 official languages of the European Union. It is managed by the European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet) Secretariat.

Users can view predefined and ready to use maps, covering topics such as environment, tourism, security, energy, transport, litter, sea bottom, fishing activity, aquaculture, and much more. Users can also benefit from an enriched catalogue with more than 250 map layers, covering a wide range of topics, to explore, collate and create their own maps.

These maps can be printed, shared and embedded in articles or presentations.

The Teachers Corner includes ready-to-use map based exercises and activities.
