Together for the Med: the platform is online!

ACCOBAMS is part of the network Together for the Med which gathers 46 partners financially supported by the MAVA Foundation , all mobilized around a single objective: to reduce the impact of fishing on marine ecosystems in the Mediterranean sea.

Since 2017, Together for the Med Partners are leading a network of 15 projects in hotspots of the Mediterranean Sea. Thanks to the MAVA Foundation, this network is working on a wide array of projects, from interactions between fishers and cetaceans to local entrepreneurship and sustainable fisheries certification, projects which aim to reduce the impacts and pressures on marine biodiversity. An active member of this partnership, ACCOBAMS is leading the Depredation project and is a main partner of the MedBycatch project
