EUROPEAN MARITIME & FISHERIES FUND 2017
DECLINING FISH STOCKS - Each year stocks decline, while the world population increases. It's not rocket science, it's basic economics - we need to boost the health of our oceans or starve. Food security is one of the most pressing international issues of our time.
New calls for proposals will be open under the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund to foster
blue growth across Europe. You
are invited to stay informed and participate at the Information Day.

OCEAN REGENERATOR - This is a raw proposal for a robot ship that is designed to vacuum up plastic waste from the ocean. The vessel is solar and wind powered - so climate friendly. Fifty units like this could make a huge difference to the quality and quantity of fish catches in the Mediterranean Sea. A SeaVax vessel is designed to operate in fleets. A version for rivers called RiverVax is designed to operate in the mouths or rivers to prevent waste reaching the ocean, so making the task of SeaVax units easier.
FISHY - An aerial picture taken in January of 2012 is of 400 students gathering on the beach of Yoff Diamalaye in Dakar to form a giant fish to draw Senegalese presidential candidate's attention to the problems of the fisheries sector in Senegal during a rally called by global environmental group Greenpeace and local fishermen organizations for a "responsible and sustainable fishery policy." This was at the end of a campaign to collect signatures throughout the country.
