Some creative thinking and investment have led to the creation of Denmark’s first recycling plant to process expanded polystyrene into plastic pellets that can be sold to manufacturers for a wide range of new products. This is a leap forward in terms of handling used fish boxes.
To reduce the impact of fish farming on the environment, a group of local actors, with initial LEADER LAG support, has developed the symbiotic production of fish and tomatoes into a highly successful business.
The Tunera FLAG is situated in the Primorje-Gorski Kotar County and consists of coastal and mountain areas where there is a longstanding fishing tradition. There are 46 active fishing vessels in total, most of them under 12m in length.
The Djursland FLAG is looking to learn from other FLAG areas in order to develop projects to improve the sales price of local seafood, ideally in contexts similar with its fisheries communities (small-scale, Baltic/North Sea coastal fisheries).
Thanks to the collaboration between two FLAGs, French and Italian fishing and shellfish operators will be improving their capacity to adapt their activities to environmental and market trends, ensuring the economic viability of Mediterranean fisheries.
