Who we are
FISHERY MEDITERRANEAN NETWORK PROJECT FISH MEDNET is a Euro-Mediterranean project aimed at developing the integration and diversification of the fisheries sector by giving it a new dimension. The project is funded by the EU under the ENI CBC Med Programme.
In the Mediterranean, the sustainable management of fisheries resources are a great challenge that cannot be postponed any longer. Today, the fragmentation of the industry hampers the revitalization of this key economic sector, and the attractiveness of the sector for the younger generations are lower than ever.
The FISH MED NET project supports Mediterranean enterprises in the fishing sector by focusing on objectives defined in four main themes, among which we find the Development of MSMEs.
The Technology Transfer and Innovation and Professionalization of Youth and Women are also themes addressed by this project, with the aim of revitalizing the fishing sector, making it more attractive to young people, offering training and facilitating access to employment through professional support.
Through new business activities, the project helps fishermen to become Guardians of the sea, contributing to the SDG 14: Conserve and sustainably use oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development.
