The International Day of Marine Tourism and Pesca-tourism will take place on the 24th of September in the city of Pontevedra (Spain). On this day, the three FLAGs located in the Rías Baixas (Galicia) will present the results of the third edition of the Mar das Illas project, whose main objective is economic diversification through the promotion of marine tourism among fishers and their families, especially in the territorial scope of the National Maritime Terrestrial Park of the Atlantic Islands of Galicia.
The project focuses on the development of information (guides and manuals for those who wish to undertake business initiatives in this field) and the training of participants as interpreters of the maritime-coastal heritage. The success of the first edition of the project led to the implementation of two more editions, by popular request. This third edition of Mar das Illas mainly aims to support and boost the development of tourism initiatives for the participants. FARNET will join the event to present similar initiatives on marine tourism and fisheries tourism at the European level.
