Wadden Sea Quality Status Report
The Wadden Sea Quality Status Report (QSR) is an online conglomeration of thematic reports on the Wadden Sea, including islands and offshore areas. The reports are sorted in five sections: geomorphology, habitats, species, human activities and pollution. Each thematic report can be downloaded as PDF.
The report went online in 2017. In 2022, updates were given to the reports on alien species, breeding birds, engergy, fish, flyway, marine mammals, migratory birds, subtidal habitats and tourism, with the most recent set of data given on the QSR website: qsr.waddensea-worldheritage.org.
Visit qsr.waddensea-worldheritage.org for the current QSR version. A complete set of all reports as PDFs (downloaded 09.09.2022) can be downloaded in a zip-file here.
