The Marineff project is a collaboration between France and the UK with the goal of developing coastal infrastructure to enhance and protect the ecological status of cross-channel coastal waters. Today, coastal infrastructure (such as the seawalls, quays, piers, groynes, and moorings) do not incorporate the enhancement of coastal and transitional water ecosystems.

The project aims to produce new ecological enhancement units to improve the ecological status of coastal and transitional watercourses, as well as professionals and stakeholders in the process. Improvements in the ecological status of the coastal infrastructure will be measured at a minimum of 15% compared to the original coastal infrastructure state.

The INTERREG VA France (Channel) – England co-funded by the ERDF and involves 9 French and British partners.
