Scientific Cooperation to Support Responsible Fisheries in the Adriatic Sea



As a central tenet of the FAO Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries, FAO-AdriaMed recognized the need to address and include small-scale fishery (SSF) within the Project's framework. An introductory consultation meeting was held in Croatia in 2003. On that occasion regional experts laid all the necessary basis for future collaboration among AdriaMed partners. As result, an international team was established as a Working Group on SSF (WG SSF). The activities of the WG-SSF were aimed at taking on the investigation of multiple aspects affecting the SSFs in the Adriatic Sea in consideration of the shared stock issue and of the interactions with other fisheries.
