FARNET Guide on diversification

Jan 18, 2012 | News

(18 January 2012) – The FARNET Support Unit, which is co-operated by AEIDL, has just published a methodological guide entitled “Diversification of Fisheries Areas”.

The current socio-economic challenges facing the fisheries sector in Europe call for a wide range of measures to improve the livelihoods of fishermen and other inhabitants of fisheries communities. One possible option opened up by Axis 4 of the European Fisheries Fund (EFF) is the economic diversification of fisheries areas.

Published in 11 languages, this fifth FARNET Guide is addressed to local action groups and potential beneficiaries who wish to implement diversification projects in fisheries areas and, more generally, in rural areas.
