Valuing Ireland’s Coastal, Marine and Estuarine Ecosystem Services
This technical report demonstrates the data sources and methods that can be used to estimate the value of a number of coastal and marine ecosystem service benefits. In particular, the study estimated the value of waste assimilation services, coastal defence services, carbon sequestration services, recreational services, offshore and inshore capture fisheries, aquaculture and seaweed harvesting, and the contribution that proximity to the coast can make to the value of residential property.
