--ARCHIVED as of 31 January 2020-- The Holderness Coast fisheries is a small scale coastal fisheries area specialising in crab and lobster. It is a vibrant industry which continues to grow and develop in the context of a struggling coastal economy traditionally dependant on seaside tourism.
The FLAG is situated in the northern part of the Lublin region, and it is strongly diversified in terms of nature and landscape. Settlements in this area have historically been linked with lakes and fishing and most fish farms still use traditional methods such as the natural feeding of fish.
The FLAG is located in the North-Eastern part of Silesia and most municipalities are part of the Polish Jurassic Highland. There are 35 fish farms, of which 12 are quite large (and have over 20 ha of fish ponds).
The FLAG area covers 20 municipalities and is of high natural value. Scenic landscapes with forests, hills and lakes attract a lot of tourism to the area, 60% of which is in the summer. Over 70% of the workforce is employed in agriculture (including fish farming).
The FLAG is located in the south-western part of the Western Pomerania region, close to the German border. The area is highly rural and there are no towns of more than 20 000 inhabitants. The inhabitants of the area arrived here after the second world war, so there is a mixture of different cultures which over the last decades have merged to form a common identity
The FLAG area is situated in the eastern part of Pomerania, on the Baltic Sea coast and the coast of the Vistula Lagoon. The fishing sector, including processing, harbour services and fish trade are important for the local economy.
The FLAG area is situated in the north-western part of the Western Pomerania region, close to the German border. There are relatively few protected areas or areas of high natural value, but the area’s clean and attractive beaches are a strong asset and a foundation for the development of tourism and water sports.
The fisheries, aquaculture and harvesting activities in the area allow a varied product offer: mussels, shellfish, fish and marine plants. This rich area, both ecologically and culturally, must manage its resources in a sustainable way.
