This interactive online tool maps initiatives and projects addressing small-scale fisheries (SSF) in the Mediterranean and the Black Sea region. It seeks to

  • Give visibility to past, ongoing and future projects addressing small-scale fisheries in the Mediterranean and the Black Sea region
  • Build synergies among these projects and support the scaling up of results at a regional level
  • Track progress being made in line with the Regional Plan of Action for Small-Scale Fisheries in the Mediterranean and the Black Sea region (RPOA-SSF), ensuring all relevant contributions are captured
  • Identify gaps in implementation and areas/topics in need of investment

 This mapping tool has been developed by the General Fisheries Commission for the Mediterranean (GFCM) in collaboration with the Friends of SSF partner organizations: the WWF Mediterranean Marine Initiative, the Black Sea Advisory Council (BlSAC), CIHEAM-Bari, the Low Impact Fishers of Europe (LIFE) and the Mediterranean Advisory Council (MEDAC).
