The FLAG area consists of a combination of mountainous and coastal landscapes. It possesses Greece’s largest lagoon (the Messolonghi lagoon). Most of the fishing activity is small-scale and traditional and takes place in the Messolonghi lagoon.
The area covers seven municipalities north of the city of Warsaw, and is unique in the Mazovia region in that 8% of its surface is covered by water. This is due in part to the meeting of three large rivers: the Vistula, the Narew and the Bug.
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.
