We are engaged to mitigate the impact of fisheries on biodiversity, protect key sensitive areas and promote sustainable fishing practices. We are united to collect data on bycatch and depredation and to facilitate ongoing engagement and collaboration with cooperative fishers.

We promote a co-management approach at the regional level through communication, experience sharing, networking and capacity building by and for coastal communities.

We mobilize and advocate to scaling up successful local solutions, accelerate the implementation of current legislation, influence European and Mediterranean policies, and develop a stronger biodiversity framework for the Mediterranean.

We foster a shift towards sustainable practices for Mediterranean fisheries via the implementation of certification, labelling process and the accessibility of sustainable seafood alternatives for consumers.

We ensure long-term financial sustainability, essential for effective MPA management. We create new mechanisms to guarantee the financial sustainability of fishermen that shift to sustainable fisheries practices.
