Good Practice Project
Godinama su lokalni ribari trpjeli posljedice financijske krize. Bankarski sustav regije ograničen je na nekoliko operatera sa strogim uvjetima za dodjeljivanje kredita.

Zbog toga što se ne uklapaju uvijek u standardni profil dužnika, ribare se može svrstati u kategoriju „neprofitabilnih”. Nedavne rasprave s tim lokalnim ribarima pokazale su potrebu da im se osigura pristupačniji sustav kreditiranja koji bi im pomogao u financiranju njihovih inicijativa.

Cooperation MS Fiche
FLAG cooperation in Finland’s EMFF programme is considered to be a way of bringing new ideas and innovations to the country in order to address some specific challenges. In particular, cooperation is sought to increase the profitability of small-scale coastal fisheries and make the sector attractive as a career for young people, as well as combatting the issues posed by seals and cormorants in fishing communities. However, cooperation is not limited and other ideas and networking can be developed among the FLAGs.
