CAMP Levante hosts the Fishing Sector Best Practises Day for the second time

26th September 2011 | Updated: 18th October 2011
Fishing Sector Best Practises Seminar

On the 23rd and 24th of September, CAMP Levante played host to the second Seminar on Fishing Sector Best Practises. The event, which is part of the CAMP Levante integrated management project, took place in Cabo de Gata and in Garrucha (province of Almeria) and was coordinated by the Regional Activity Centre for Cleaner Production (CAR/PL).

The sessions were attended by 25 people and dealt with topics such as the role of the Mediterranean Platform for Traditional Fishing in the current  Common Fishing Policies reforms, the Co-Management of Fishing Reserves in Andalusia, the new regulations regarding sport fishing as well as direct sales mechanisms, energy saving measures and the diversification of the fishing sector, among others.

Attendant fishermen also took part in a survey regarding their knowledge of the marine environment and the results of the survey will be included in the sector regulation proposals that are currently being studied by AGAPA (the Agriculture and Fisheries Management Agency for Andalusia), a public company attached to the Regional Government of Andalusia.

CAMP Levante, in Almeria, is a project that conforms to a methodology established by the United Nations to promote an administration model for this stretch of coastline by being the first to implement the European Integrated Coastal Zone Management approach.
