Task. 4.1. The project should identify and catalogue already existing networks specifically related to small-scale fishermen or broader maritime (fishermen) networks with SSFS involvement. Indicators will attempt to measure the degree of participation in the networks through using, the information traffic, the number of regional or local cooperation projects, the number of good practices adopted, the exchange of experiences, etc.
Deliverable 4.1. Database of networks including SSFS.
Task 4.2. The project will also explore the SSFS involvement in new specifically SSFS related networks, or even in broader maritime networks. Moreover the project will also explore the necessity of promoting and even creating a new fishermen open network in south-westerns waters. The project will identify the main goals to reach when promoting these modified and/or new networks trying to overcome the problems of the current institutional model according to the input from the analysis within Action 2 (e.g. fishermen should be acknowledged as environmental managers taking part in long-term management plans, among others).
