Universidade do Algarve

The 4th general meeting of the European project CABFISHMAN (Interreg Atlantic Area) is taking place at the University of Algarve. The project aims to take snapshot of the European small-scale fisheries (SSF, vessels <12m) status, contributing to the improvement of its management, according to an approach based on the protection of marine ecosystems. CABFISHMAN, with 13 partners from 5 countries (Portugal, Spain, United Kingdom and Ireland), maintains a strong connection to the fishing sector, promoting the construction of maps of the main European fishing grounds, identifying SSF socio-economic and cultural importance and their impacts on marine ecosystems, promoting solutions for their sustainability.
