Fishermen and marine protected areas, a partnership for sustainability in the Mediterranean
Working with fishermen in MPAs
Telašćica, Croatia: On an island with just over 1000 people, daily communication with fishermen is an integral part of life – a tradition. Conservation Services works with fishermen to come up with solutions together to preserve fish stocks in the Telašćica nature park.
National Marine Park of Zakynthos, Greece: MPA managers and fishermen see MPAs as spatially restricted ‘laboratories’ for fisheries and fish stock management – the knowledge gained from their performance and governance can be used in fisheries management at a larger scale.
