Area

The F/LAG area is located along 28 Km of the Adriatic coast and stretches 30 Km into the hinterland, in the South West of Bari province, It convers eight municipalities, of which some have Axis 4 experience built up with the Mare degli Ulivi FLAG. Only two municipalities are touristic seaside cities: Mola di Bari and Polignano a Mare. The local economy is mostly based on agriculture, services and commerce. In the recent past tourism has been of growing importance as the Apulia region has become a popular touristic destination.

Fisheries is the main economic sector in the municipality of Mola di Bari, and the area has the third most important fleet in the region including an important port and market area. Other municipalities such as Polignano a Mare have small scale fishermen. The catch consists of fish, clams and shellfish.

The main challenge for the area is to increase income for the fishermen and engaging the community to find new sales methods such as on board or on-line selling and home delivery.

  • Finance public infrastructures for fish selling and enhance and preserve the marine environment and coastal communities
  • Organise information and awareness-raising activities directed at fishing operators, study visits and best practices exchanges on new selling technologies, entrepreneurship, diversification of fishing income;

Support cultural and gastronomic tourism, through actions focused on the quality and healthiness of local fishing products, as well as encouraging the direct involvement of fishing operators.
