The management of Small Scale Fisheries in Mediterranean MPAs

The MedPAN network training will be embedded with the “FishMPABlue2 Toolkit transfer regional training course”, which is a deliverable of the FishMPABlue2 project.

This training course will focus on lessons learnt from pilot projects and will be organized in modules related to different components of the toolkit. It will feature concrete practical exercises for MPA managers to understand how the process could be implemented in their site.
