The establishment of collaboration with the Mediterranean Action Plan (MAP) is part of the implementation strategy of the FAO-AdriaMed Project. This paper provides general information on the AdriaMed Project in order to identify possible areas of cooperation with the SAP BIO Project. The overall aims and objectives of the Project concerning collaboration among the participating countries are indicated as well as aspects relating to fisheries research and the process of strengthening scientific cooperation. A brief introduction to the Adriatic Sea environment is given together with a short overview of Adriatic Sea capture fisheries. Some AdriaMed regional scientific programmes and activities are pointed out as of likely relevance to the SAP BIO. Finally, the initial steps for cooperation between AdriaMed and the SAP BIO Projects are identified and proposed.
