EU Blue Economy Report 2020

The European Commission has published “The EU Blue Economy Report 2020”, providing an overview of the performance of the EU economic sectors related to oceans and the coastal environment.

With a turnover of €750 billion in 2018, the EU blue economy is in good health. There were 5 million people working in the blue economy sector in 2018, representing a significant increase of 11.6% compared to the year before.

Although sectors such as coastal and marine tourism, as well as fisheries and aquaculture are severely affected by the coronavirus pandemic, the blue economy as a whole presents a huge potential in terms of its contribution to a green recovery.
