Territoire

The FLAG covers the entire 130km coast of the Emilia-Romagna region. In this region fishing and lagoon fish farming have a tradition for centuries. The local economy is mainly based on fishing, aquaculture, mari-culture and summer coastal tourism. Under the 2007-2013 programming period (EFF – Axis IV), this area was covered by two separate FLAGs (GAC Distretto Mare Adriatico and GAC Marinerie della Romagna), focusing on the revival of the local fishing community (modernising the sector and making it more sustainable), wholesale, processing and retail, youth employment and fishing tourism.

The Emilia-Romagna Coast FLAG will continue their work and further develop the areas’ historical, cultural, gastronomic, social and environmental peculiarities. It will support integration of local fisheries resources, maritime activities, cultural heritage elements and local traditions.
