The Project aims to promote scientific
cooperation among the Adriatic nations. Its goal is to
improve the management of fishing activities in
conformity with the Code of Conduct for Responsible
Fisheries (FAO 1995).
AdriaMed aims to contribute decisively
to enlarging the scope of information on the Adriatic
Sea, related to shared fishery resources, knowledge that
is often fragmented and localised to different
territories. As biological resources are not limited to
geopolitical boundaries, scientific knowledge of
resources within a single nation is not adequate for the
responsible management of those resources.
Some of the main objectives of the
to develop a common cognitive basis to
support international processes aimed at fishery
to reinforce the scientific
coordination among the different institutions interested
in fishing activity;
to establish a permanent network among
the main institutions present in the Adriatic that are
involved in fishery management activities.
