The FLAG covers an area of 1 833km2, accounting for just over a third of Prahova county. The region covers the southern slopes of the Southern Carpathians and descends south through the sub-Carpathian hills.
The FLAG is situated in the southern part of the Dolj county, on the Danube, and on the border with Bulgaria. Agriculture is the region’s primary sector as the land is naturally suited for growing cereals, vegetables and fruit.
The Macin Branch FLAG is in the western extremity of Tulcea county and males up roughly 12% of its total area. The Danube meadow forms the lowest part of FLAG area and comprises several wetlands which include pond and marsh habitats.
The net making profession has always been one of the least recognised professions within the fishing sector so several Galician net makers´ associations have brought it into the spotlight by combining dissemination workshops with a new range of products based on their unique know-how.
The FLAG area is situated in the south of the Istrian peninsula. All local self-government units, apart from the Svetvinčenat municipality, are coastal. The area is very rich in historical and cultural heritage which to a large extent is linked with the sea and fisheries. A significant part of the area is under the protection of Natura 2000.
