Five no-take zones for fishing were set up in Sweden 2009-2011, three on the Swedish west coast and two on the east coast. These zones have since been evaluated by the Swedish Agency for Marine and Water Management with analysis of both de biological and cost benefit effects of the no-take zones. CERE made an analysis of the cost-benefit effects and it showed that the no-take zones for fishing could increase the value for both fishing and other ecosystem services like improved water quality, improved experience of nature or foreign species control.
