Impacting activities include coastal development and sprawl, overfishing, destructive fishing, contamination of sediments and biota caused by pollution, nutrient over-enrichment, disturbance and noise pollution caused by shipping, marine industries and navies, spread of invasive species in many cases facilitated by climate change and degradation of transitional and estuarine areas (UNEP-MAP, 2012). Accordingly, all these pressure factors exert a significant impact on the Mediterranean biota and taxa, leading to an increasing number of species facing a high risk of extinction.
