Project examples - Adding value to fisheries products

In the face of rising production costs and increasing competition from imports, developing actions to add value to local fisheries and aquaculture products is a key component in many FLAG strategies. Most local projects for adding value to fisheries products aim to close the gap between fishing and consumers and to improve veritcal links between actors at different points on the fisheries supply chain. They should also seek to maximize synergies with other investments in processing and marketing supported, for example under Axis 2 of the EFF. The following projects offer some examples of such actions that are being supported under Axis4.
