These activities open up a new door for tourists to learn the lifestyle of fishermen and local fisher villages throughout Italy. For this same reason Legacoop Agroalimentare, Italian partner of FISH MED NET, provides an opportunity to many fishers to share their lifestyle, empowering them by being local guardians and teachers explaining their jobs and lifestyles. By promoting this type of tourism together with local fishermen, it also helps them increase their incomes while reducing fishing pressure to the ecosystem.
