Increased opportunities for small-scale fishermen in the Mediterranean and Black Sea

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 19 ottobre 2018

Ministers from EU Member States and riparian third countries adopted an ambitious 10-year Regional Action Plan for sustainable small-scale fisheries in the Mediterranean and the Black Sea. The plan sets out detailed measures to ensure a sustainable use of fish stocks, whilst restoring long-term economic and social prosperity for small-scale fishers and coastal communities.The High Level Conference on sustainable small-scale fisheries in the Mediterranean and the Black Sea, co-organised by FAO’s General Fisheries Commission for the Mediterranean (GFCM) and Malta, with the financial support of the European Commission, concluded today with an agreement on a historic political commitment.Today’s Ministerial Declaration takes ambitions to the next level by translating the political commitments set in the Malta MedFish4Ever Declaration (2017) and the Sofia Declaration (2018) into a detailed regional plan. The plan reinforces opportunities for small-scale fishermen in the Mediterranean and the Black Sea regions by giving them a voice in the decisions that affect their livelihoods. It aims at enhancing their capacities in contributing to food security and in achieving economic, social and employment benefits while safeguarding environmentally sustainable fishing practices.The High Level Conference on sustainable small-scale fisheries highlighted best practice from the region, showcasing the progress made in recent years at a dedicated event yesterday. Today, a new digital platform, “Friends of Small-scale Fishermen” was launched. Partly financed by the EU, it is an easy-to-use mapping tool visualising all ongoing projects and investments in small-scale fisheries, and enhancing cooperation across the region.
