    Assessing and Monitoring Fisheries Resources and Ecosystems in the Straits of Sicily –Year 8 of the Medsudmed Project - GCP/INT/364/EC Baby 02 2022
    Also available in:

    The Strait of Sicily is home to many shared pelagic and demersal fisheries. Owing to their transboundary nature, these resources require a harmonized approach to fisheries management that is governed by the principles of the FAO Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries (CCRF), the Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries (EAF) and is in line with the FAO Blue Transformation Roadmap. In April 2001, the MedSudMed Project was initiated to improve the capacity for fisheries planning and management based on scientific cooperation in the south central Mediterranean through the provision of capacity development and support to four countries: Italy, Libya, Malta and Tunisia. In 2012, the MedSudMed European Community Action began. In its eighth year, the Action continued to focus on the achievement of three Outputs: ( i ) developing capacities for the implementation of EAF through scientific fisheries monitoring and research; (ii) the preparation of scientific advice for managing fisheries; and (iii) the enhancement of regional cooperation and coordination in support of fisheries management, research and capacity development.

    Supporting Responsible Fisheries in the Adriatic Sea - GCP/INT/319/EC 2020
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    The Adriatic Sea is a semi-enclosed basin and one of the largest areas of occurrence of shared stocks in the Mediterranean. Most of the pelagic and demersal fisheries resources in the basin migrate through national waters of different countries during their life cycle, and are shared among the fisheries of at least three countries. Shared fisheries resources are exploited under different regimes in each country, while their transboundary nature justifies harmonized management approaches. Achieving the optimal use of fisheries resources in these regions requires an effective cooperative management framework, based on accepted concepts, such as the Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries (EAF). However, dedicated support is required to enable the countries in the subregion to develop the capacity (human, institutional and knowledge-based) to cooperate and effectively manage the fisheries resources in accordance with the EAF. Against this background, the project, as part of the longer-lasting AdriaMed programme, “Scientific Cooperation to Support Responsible Fisheries in the Adriatic Sea”, aimed to support the sustainability of marine fisheries and the ecosystem in the Adriatic Sea, taking into consideration environmental, biological, economic, social and institutional issues. The participating countries were Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Italy, Montenegro and Slovenia.

    Improving capacity for fisheries planning and management in the South-Central Mediterranean - GCP/INT/269/EC 2019
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    The Straits of Sicily is one of the most important fishing areas of the Mediterranean Sea, where significant fleets operate with high fish production. However, the available knowledge on fishery resources and their ecosystems in the region is often scarce. This project was part of a longer-lasting programme (MedSudMedProject, “Assessment and Monitoring of the Fishery Resources and the Ecosystems in the Straits of Sicily”), which was created to strengthen national and regional research capacities and to promote scientific cooperation in the southern part of the central Mediterranean for the assessment and monitoring of fishery resources. The project aimed to consolidate and further develop the results achieved so far, and to launch additional cooperative work. MedSudMedbecame operational in 2001, based on requests by countries in the theStraits of Sicily and funding from Italy. Since 2007 the project is also cofundedby the European Union (EU) Directorate-General for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries (DG-MARE). The present report highlights the achievements obtained during the 5thyear of financial contributions by DG-Mare to the MedSudMedproject.
