According to article 6 of the habitat directive, the individual member states are obliged to ensure that the habitat types and species for which these areas were designated are being preserved and restored. The instruments to do this, conservation measures, can be freely adopted by every member state. Before the conservation measures can be described, the goals and targets have to be determined. In this project, conservation targets will be defined for the SAPs and SACs in the Antwerp Sea Harbour. Combined with a statistical analysis of the population and fluctuations of internationally important species and types during the past 25 years, functional-ecological theories will be used to support the targets.
