The Chania FLAG covers the western chunk of the Island of Crete, the largest and most populous of the Greek islands. The fisheries sector is strong here as evidenced by the location of several fisheries ports and processing units in the area.
The Dodecanese islands are found on the south-eastern coast of Greece. The 20 inhabited islands are strongly connected with activities linked to the sea. The local economy is mainly dependent on tourism.
The island of Chios belongs of the region of Northern Aegean. It is found in the eastern Aegean near the Turkish coast, and as such, has recently come under considerable pressure due to the migrant crisis.
Pescado artesanal is an online platform and a communication campaign to increase the consumption of artisanal seafood. The online platform pools products of four auctions, making local seafood more accessible to buyers.
The FLAG is located in the western part of the Kujawsko-Pomorskie voivodeship, an area rich in rivers and lakes (including the Noteć river and the Bydgoszcz Canal). The fisheries activity is carried out by a few large aquaculture producers (mainly carp) and by the Polish Anglers’ Association who owns 5750 ha of waters.
