FORCOAST aims to offer information services co-designed with stakeholders, which provide high-resolution data of water quality and met-ocean variables at coastal zone and nearshore that are used to give focused answers to specific questions from the targeted wild fisheries, bivalve mariculture, and oysterground restoration sectors.

FORCOAST is developing, testing and demonstrating, in operational mode, novel Copernicus-based downstream information services that will incorporate Copernicus Marine, Land and Climate Services Products, local monitoring data and advanced modelling in the service.

FORCOAST – Earth Observation services for wild fisheries, oysterground restoration and bivalve mariculture along European coasts – is an EU-funded project which is comprised of 21 partners from The Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark, Ireland Portugal, Spain, Italy, Romania and Bulgaria.
