Abstract The Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency (PBL) developed several biodiversity models for the terrestrial environment to support policy making and evaluation. For the marine environment currently such modelling instruments are lacking. In 2009 an overview of modelling instruments was developed for marine biodiversity of its components. The objective of the current report is one of these modelling instruments, i.e. the Mackinson-Daskalov North Sea EcoSpace model. This model has been analysed in detail to assess its potential applicability for questions relevant for PBL. These questions are: (i) Can the model be used to assess the impact of primary production scenarios, (ii) can the model be used to develop output at a higher spatial resolution and (iii) can it generate output for biodiversity criteria.
