All the Project participating institutions (from Albania, Croatia, Montenegro Italy and Slovenia) was attended the meeting. The WG was focused on the revision of the priorities identified by the AdriaMed Technical meeting on Small Scale Fisheries held in October 2013 in Kotor (Montenegro). Consideration was given to the identification of practical formulation of joint specific activities to be elaborated by the WG-SSF, inclusive of methodological approach, to be implemented in the cooperative framework of the AdriaMed Project. In light of the forthcoming “Second Regional Symposium on Sustainable Small-Scale Fisheries in the Mediterranean and Black Sea” (Algeria, May 2015) fostered by GFCM, the participants was called to discuss on the contribution that the Working Group could provide to the symposium.
