  • Poland - 36 FLAGs - 93.7 M€

    15/12/2021
    - Country Factsheet
    While sea fisheries in Poland suffer from decreasing fish stocks in the main catching area (the Baltic Sea), inland aquaculture still has significant potential for growth (mainly carp). In Poland, the focus of the 36 FLAGs is more on the fisheries sector and job creation, than on the development of coastal areas in general.

    - Cooperation MS Fiche
    Cooperation activities are not mandatory in the Polish EMFF programme, but FLAGs are encouraged to undertake them. Cooperation is considered as a good way to facilitate learning by FLAGs and to contribute to achieving their strategic objectives, which strongly prioritise job creation, both within and outside the fisheries sector. In the previous period many Polish FLAGs already proved eager to learn from FLAGs in other Member States and to share their experience with them.
