How to get involved
We need your collaboration to obtain the necessary sample size of good quality data to compile a robust report that relevant authorities require to take action in the management of the risk of illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing that is at the source of the alarming ghost fishing situation in the Mediterranean. The data and images collected will annually be presented to MAPA, MITECO, EC DGMARE, ICCAT and the FAO General Fisheries Council of the Mediterranean.
