Good Practice Method
Nacionalne mreže (NM-ovi) imaju važnu ulogu u razvoju kapaciteta FLAG-ova i upravljačkih tijela (UT-ova) kao i u poticanju i podržavanju transnacionalne suradnje. U Estoniji je NM 2007.–2013. blisko surađivao s UT-om kako bi olakšao dijalog i osigurao dobru suradnju među svim subjektima uključenima u ribarstvene CLLD-ove. Također je razvio informativne alate te usmjerio FLAG-ove i omogućio izgradnju kapaciteta za njih.
