    - Good Practice Project
    Itä-Suomen kalatalousryhmä on tukenut saalistietojen ilmoittamiseen tarkoitetun mobiilisovelluksen kehittämistä suomalaisille sisävesikalastajille. Ammattikorkeakoulun kehittämä sovellus, joka otettiin käyttöön toukokuussa 2020, parantaa saalistietojen keruuta ja jäljitettävyyttä koko kalastuksen arvoketjussa.

    16/12/2020
    - Good Practice Project
    Limvuonossa on ympäristörasituksesta huolimatta runsaasti meritaimenta, joka on virkistyskalastajien suosima laji. Alueen talous- ja ympäristötavoitteiden saavuttamiseksi FLAG-ryhmät ovat yhdessä paikallisten toimintaryhmien kanssa perustaneet vapaa-ajankalastukseen keskittyvän uuden matkailukohteen.
