The Western Mediterranean Sea


The study area mainly includes the continental shelves of two European states (France and Spain), three North African countries (Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia), and Gibraltar and Monaco. Overall, the total shelf area in the western Mediterranean down to the 150 m isobath is 208,000 km2 within a total basin area of 1,343,620 km2. There is a major difference in the degree of available information from EU member states and North African countries.
