Scientific Cooperation to Support Responsible Fisheries in the Adriatic Sea



Since its inception, the AdriaMed Project has provided technical assistance to the participating countries to develop a common cognitive basis in support of international processes aimed at fishery management. In this context, the knowledge gap on the fishing sector, mainly on the socio-economic aspects, has been identified as one of the main factors hampering the planning of informed fishery management. To overcome this gap, studies related to fish markets, fishermen organizations, fishing capacity and fishery socio economy in the Adriatic countries have been promoted, including in the field data collection according to standardised procedures.
