Workshop on methodologies and techniques of environmental, economic and social monitoring of small scale fisheries
In the framework of FishMPABlue 2 project (co-funded by Med Programme) the Ecomers lab, together with other project partners and Cote Bleue Marine Park, organized the workshop “Methodologies and techniques of environmental, economic and social monitoring of small scale fisheries”. The workshop was held at Cote Bleue Marine Park’s premises in Carry Le Rouet (Marseille, France) on 4-5 April 2017.
About 30 attendees (including project partners, managers and scientists from 11 Mediterranean MPAs) lively and successfully discussed about the methodologies that will be adopted in FishMPABlue 2 to investigate the ecological, economic and social dimension of the socio-ecological system represented by MPAs and small scale fisheries in the Mediterranean.
The workshop was the occasion to underline that both ecological and socio-economic assessments are pivotal to capture the full complexity of these systems and properly manage them.
