The project aims to acknowledge and advance responsible and competitive practices of the Mediterranean small-scale fisheries and improve responsible consumption of fish products by capitalising on similar practices, ideas and information that empower small-scale fishers. The action will focus on the potential for launching a transnational labelling scheme for the value chains of small-scale fisheries in the Mediterranean.
