Good Practice Project
Ένας αλιευτικός συνεταιρισμός υιοθετεί τη νέα τεχνολογία για να διασφαλίσει τη βιωσιμότητα των αποθεμάτων αυτοχθόνων στρειδιών της περιοχής. Με τη βοήθεια των συλλογέων γόνων στρειδιών («coupelles») που χρησιμοποιούνται στη Γαλλία, η Εταιρεία Αλιέων Στρειδιών του Tralee κατάφερε να εξασφαλίσει ένα καλύτερο μέλλον για τους αλιείς στρειδιών της, όπως και για την τοπική παράδοση που αντιπροσωπεύουν.
The Hastings FLAG is looking for experience, cases, solutions and actions taken to reduce marine litter in other parts of Europe and, in particular, in the Channel area and North Sea.
The FLAG territory covers the municipalities of Aksakovo, Beloslav and Asparuhovo which are situated on the Black Sea coast and near to the Varna Lake. The FLAG area is one of the most economically and socially developed regions in Bulgaria. Fishing, both coastal and inland, is mostly small-scale.
The FLAG’s territory is a coastal area which includes 1.5km of beaches and 670m of sand dunes. The dunes are not just a natural phenomenon, they are specific environmental habitat and an important part of the area’s coastal landscape with great ecological significance.
The FLAG territory is situated in the southern part of Bulgaria (in the western part of the Rhodope Mountains). The mountainous area has several rivers, which are among the largest in Bulgaria. The region has a relatively low population density which is nearly three times lower than the national average.
The Tri Mora FLAG is situated in the central part of Adriatic coast in Zadar County, under the Velebit mountain range and stretching over the Velebit channel.
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.
The FLAG’s territory extends along the west coast and in the inland part of the Istrian peninsula. As the FLAG area includes some of the most popular tourist destinations of the Upper Adriatic, tourism is the most important economic activity, relying on highly developed hotel and private sector capacities.
