    This course focuses on identifying ecosystem services, such as providing services, which are goods derived from ecosystems; regulating services, meaning benefits obtained from regulation of ecosystem processes; cultural services, which are intangible benefits, and finally, supporting services, meaning services required to produce other ecosystem services. The production and trading of living marine resources, the extraction and use of non-living marine resources, as well as transportation, trade, and tourism, are all highlighted in this course as connected business activities that contribute to Albania's blue economy.
