Sustainable Fishing in the Aeolians
Blue Marine Foundation
Blue Marine’s ambition is to improve marine management in the Italian Aeolian Islands through better protection and better local fishing practices. Blue Marine is looking to introduce the fisheries & conservation model developed in Lyme Bay, to allow small-scale fishermen to improve their livelihoods, while reducing their impact on the marine environment — a win-win for sustainable fishing and marine protection.
Blue Marine partners with local scientific organisations to document the baseline and post-project conditions of habitats, fish stocks and socioeconomics to prove that the model effects change. Through education, they help coastal communities to understand and manage their marine resources — which is essential for healthy marine areas.
