Presented during the 2018 MedPAN experience sharing-workshop.
The lack of influence of Small Scale Fishers on the fishery management processes is causing them not be engaged in fisheries policy development, which often endangers their livelihoods and endangers the sustainable use of coastal fisheries resources. In the next 4 years, we will try to establish new, more functional co-management based model for managing and controlling the fisheries resources of Telascica Nature Park. MPA authorities will be able to establish a more effective control of illegal activities concerning the exploitation of fishing resources in the protected area. On the other hand, the voice of fishers who now act united will become significantly more important.
