"Marine Environment, Coastal Threats and Fisheries"


The European Union is the largest importer of fish, and 50% comes from developing countries. Per capita consumption of fish worldwide reaches 20 kg, while 90% of fish stocks are threatened by overfishing.


According to a university study, humanity has produced a total of 9.1 billion tons of plastic from 1950 to today. Most of this amount still remains in the environment (landfills/ecosystems) while only 9% has been recycled.


In Greece, according to recent scientific research, erosion is observed on at least 28% of the coasts. The coastline recedes every year, so for every meter of beach we lose over 1 square meter of coastal zone per year.


Almost one tenth of the territory of the European Union, and to be precise 8% of the area or about 140 million hectares, is vulnerable to gradual desertification, and especially in areas belonging to Southern, Eastern and Central Europe.

The inter-regional cooperation project "Marine Environment, Coastal Threats and Fisheries" is implemented in the context of Priority 4 "Increasing employment and territorial cohesion" of the EP. "Fisheries and the Sea" (EPALTH) 2014-2020
