The Ex ante Evaluation of the OP EMFF assesses the completeness of the analysis, the internal consistency of the OP, the selected thematic objectives, the priorities, and the relevance of the OP indicators. The Strategic Environmental Assessment defines the possible environmental impacts of the OP on the marine and terrestrial ecosystems affected by fishery and aquaculture activities. Special attention is paid for the potential negative impacts on the Nature 2000 Network, on the marine protected areas and on the wetlands.  For these categories, is devoted a “Study of environmental incidence“, that is an integral part of the Environmental Report. In addition, is analyzed the integration inside the OP of biodiversity and climate change’s themes.
