In the last quarter of 2020 we’ve been working hard to define a new plan of action for 2021-2023. A plan that reinforces our three current priorities: to improve and enlarge marine protected areas, to transform our fishing fleet into the most sustainable in the entire Mediterranean and to bring people closer to the sea.
With this in mind, we will continue to work and support collaborative initiatives that are so essential for this long-term change to become possible, such as the Balearic Sea Report; the marine citizen science programme together with Observers of the Sea; the strengthening of the third sector; and developing marine natural capital accounts. All of this will require the involvement of multiple sectors and an increase in the amount of financing dedicated to marine conservation.
Marilles is run and managed by a small, highly-dedicated team of professionals and experts.
