Supporting fisheries to achieve higher degrees of environmental sustainability
The Medpath project aims to enable fisheries in the Mediterranean to achieve higher degrees of environmental sustainability. MedPath is composed of three projects - Medfish in France & Spain, BluFish in Italy, and HellasFish in Greece.
• Facilitate and support the implementation of action plans for improvement in fisheries.
• Identify best practices, implement technical solutions and compile/disseminate project case studies/lessons learned.
• Build and ensure fishery stakeholders' capacity to support improvement processes towards more sustainability beyond the project’s end date.
• Research on financing mechanisms tailored to enable future implementation of action plans.

The Mediterranean is currently facing overfishing and overexploitation of its resources: it is therefore essential to change fishing methods to incorporate sustainability criteria. To achieve this, MedPath utilizes MSC pre-certification tools to help fishers, governments and other relevant Mediterranean stakeholders achieve sustainability in local fisheries.
