Participating in the challenges of the energy, digital and technological transition means staying in the current context with awareness and concreteness. The concepts of competitiveness and sustainability must not be in opposition to each other. Instead, they must go hand in hand not only to satisfy the food needs of Italians, but also to make the sector more attractive for young people and accompany fishermen in the challenges of the transition“.

The words of the director of Federpesca, Francesca Biondo, best summarize the conference “Mare Bene Comune: fishing in the challenges of transition” organized by Federpesca at the Ara Pacis Museum.

The Roman event was an opportunity to present “Mare Bene Comune“, a project financed by the PO FEAMP 2014/2020, which saw the involvement of Federpesca as leader and the Anthon Dohrn Zoological Station as partner. Created in the Marinerie of Sciacca and Molfetta, Mare Bene Comune aims to maximize the positive impact that the fishing sector can have to combat the problem of marine waste and contribute to the protection of the seas, the conservation of marine protected areas, the correct management of biological resources and the prevention of marine pollution, thus improving the quality of Mediterranean fish products.
