Many of the case studies are by industry members of the MERCES Business Club.  Links are provided to the companies and their contacts to allow readers to follow up on procedures and methods.

We aim to provide a hub of expertise in marine ecosystem restoration by providing examples of successful projects undertaken in a wide variety of environmental settings from the coast to the deep sea.  In particular we highlight the contributions made by European companies, conservation bodies and scientific organisations.  We provide information on general policies, regulations and law across Europe and international waters, including Regional Seas.  In addition you will find details of the latest research on marine ecosystem restoration as it is published. 

Through these web pages we aim to keep members of the MERCES Business Club informed of the latest developments in marine ecosystem restoration.  We welcome new contributions from companies wishing to communicate their latest projects.  MERCES Business Club members will be advised as new content is published on the MERCES web pages. 

The MERCES Business Club looks forward to addressing to your business and environmental management needs.  If you would like to join the 300+ members of the MERCES Business Club to keep informed of the new business area of marine ecosystem restoration please follow the link below to register your interest.  There is no cost to join the MERCES Business Club.
