Testing and transferring an improved fishing tourism business model in the coastal territories of Italy, Cyprus, Greece, Albania, France and Spain as a way to diversify the income of the fishery cooperatives, while fostering the preservation of the marine ecosystem and of the traditional fishery cultural heritage in the Mediterranean.

Summary

TOURISMED aims at testing and transferring an improved fishing tourism business model in the coastal territories of Italy, Cyprus, Greece, Albania, France and Spain as a way to diversify the income of fishery cooperatives, while fostering the preservation of the marine ecosystem and of the traditional fishery cultural heritage in the Mediterranean.

Expected changes concern a more sustainable use and valorisation of marine resources, a diversification of income and a recognition of coastal traditional heritage. The project will produce a pilot test of the model and an evaluation tool to assess its replication in the Med. A training course will involve fishermen to implement the touristic itineraries in synergy with local tourism operators. The final model will be promoted by a web tool to clients willing to set up a fishing tourism business, while an interactive map of itineraries will be used to reach tourists. Protocols with public bodies and fishing associations (MoU) will be followed by policy recommendations to ensure sustainability of project’s impacts.
