ABOUT COPEMED II

CopeMed II, Coordination to Support Fisheries Management in the Western and Central Mediterranean, is a project under the responsibility of the Marine and Inland Fisheries Service (FIAF), Fisheries and Aquaculture Department Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), Rome.

Various scientific studies have shown that many fish populations in the Mediterranean are subject to excessive exploitation, with signs of overfishing and overcapacity, degradation of living resources, loss of income for fishermen and reduction of marine resources in certain areas.

The overall objective of CopeMed II is to mantain the sustainability of the marine resources in the central and western sub-regions and its ecosystem, taking into account environmental, biological, economical, social and institutional issues, particularly througt the promotion of scientific cooperation among the countries.
