About AdriaMed

AdriaMed "Scientific Cooperation to Support Responsible Fisheries in the Adriatic Sea" is an FAO Regional Project and it is funded by the Italian Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Forestry Policies (MiPAAF) and since 2007 by the European Commission. The Project aims in promoting scientific cooperation among the Adriatic countries (Republics of Albania, Croatia, Italy, Montenegro and Slovenia), in line with the Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries (UN-FAO).

The meeting will be attended by representatives of the Donors, delegations from the countries participating in the Project (Albania, Croatia, Italy, Montenegro and Slovenia), representatives of the Marine and Inland Service of the Fisheries Resources Use and Conservation Division (FAO-FIRF) of FAO, the General Fisheries Commission for the Mediterranean (GFCM), the FAO Mediterranean Regional Projects.
The Committee will discuss the inter committee period and the programme of activities proposed for the next intersessional period of implementation.

27-30 November 2013. St. Julians, Malta
GFCM - First Regional Symposium on Sustainable Small-Scale Fisheries in the Mediterranean and Black Sea

Small-scale fisheries traditionally represent an important share of the fisheries sector in the Mediterranean and Black Sea and their considerable role in the region has long been recognized. They have the potential to contribute significantly to food security, economic growth and rural development and to provide valuable employment opportunities. This is why there is a genuine and widespread interest in securing their sustainable development in the whole region. Small-scale fisheries are characterized by a great diversity and represent different values and ways of life. They are important vectors of local knowledge and good practices for co-management and they have a low environmental impact. However, there is sparse information at the regional level on their production volumes and socio-economic dimension as well as on their contribution to sustainable development and to the preservation of marine ecosystems.

Improving the Analysis of Fisheries Data: An Introduction to R and the Fisheries Library based on R (FLR)

This training held under a series of priority actions of the different institutions involved. The joint Research Centre (JRC), in order to support the EU enlargement policy, promotes the integration of the EU New Member States, Candidate Countries and Potential Candidate Countries in the European Research Area and assists them through an increased participation in relevant activities by offering training and mobility possibilities. In addition to the European Neighborhood Policy (ENP), the JRC is offering the same possibilities on an ad hoc basis also to the ENP Partner Countries. For the GFCM and the FAO Regional Projects, the course is included within the actions towards capacity building in stock assessment, as a way to improve science underpinning management of fisheries in the Mediterranean and the Black Sea, and to follow related recommendations made by the GFCM Scientific and Advisory Committee (SAC).
