On November 11th, we organized the online discussion “Fishing Tourism, an excellent practice for fishers and the marine environment” in collaboration with Cyclades Preservation Fund.
The discussion was attended by fishers from Attica, Amorgos, Paros, Andros, and Santorini. They shared their experiences from the field and talked about attracting visitors, the challenges and opportunities, and what you need to know about the fishing tourism application process. Also, representatives of the local government and the tourism industry participated, developing possibilities for further promotion of fishing tourism as a new tourism product.
As part of the discussion, the “Fishing Tourism Guide”, prepared in the framework of the Fish Smarter program, was presented for the first time. You can read the “Fishing Tourism Guide” on our website.
