Croatia, one of the signatories of the 1976 Barcelona Convention for Protection against Pollution in the Mediterranean Sea, is also one of the first countries in the Mediterranean that began implementing a systematic monitoring of sea quality. In certain Croatian counties the monitoring has been ongoing since 1986 while the systematic and continuous monitoring within the National Sea Monitoring Programme which consists of testing the sea quality along the entire Adriatic coast has been carried out regularly since 1989.

 

In 2012 the testing was done at 912 points across Croatia. In the period between May 15th and September 30th of that year a total of 8840 samples were gathered at 779 Croatian beaches. The monitoring was coordinated by the Croatian Ministry of Environment and carried out by the seven coastal counties of Croatia. Excellent grades were given to 98,03 percent of the samples, while 1,21 percent were found to be satisfactory and only 0,77 percent of the samples were found to be unsatisfactory. There is no doubt that the sea in Croatia, alongside the sea surrounding Cyprus and Malta, will once more be given the highest grades in Europe.

 

The main goals of this programme are the protection of the health of swimmers, management of beaches with the aim of preserving their natural values and ensuring sustainable use, tracking of the building of new and functionality of old sewer systems, ascertaining the source of pollution and providing recovery as well as publishing the results of sea quality testing in order to inform the public and promote tourist venues.
