General Fisheries Commission for the Mediterranean - GFCM

Mapping of SSF initiatives

To meet the ambitious targets set by the Regional Plan of Action for Small-scale Fisheries in the Mediterranean and the Black Sea (RPOA-SSF), synergies among all actors working in the field – from the local to the regional level – are needed in order to disseminate and scale-up best practices, promote cooperation and identify gaps and areas for investment.

This interactive SSF mapping tool serves as a resource to promote awareness of and build synergies among past, present and future projects on SSF being carried out in the field in the Mediterranean and the Black Sea region. The mapping tool can also facilitate monitoring the implementation of the RPOA-SSF, as each project is associated with the relevant RPOA-SSF thematic section(s) and specific topic(s) it addresses.


For best visualization of the SSF mapping tool, it is suggested to use Chrome, Firefox or Edge web browsers. Please note that the data representation tools may be updated or modified as the tool evolves and needs emerge.

Contribute with your project information!

The tool is most useful when it is as complete and up-to-date as possible! We therefore encourage you to give visibility to your past, present or future projects addressing SSF by including them in the mapping tool. To do this, kindly complete this form with your project’s information (if your project is located in multiple sites, kindly submit one form per site). Should you need assistance, please contact us.
