The European Fisheries Areas Network

European Commission

Bruxelles, Belgium website

FARNET is the community of people implementing Community-Led Local Development (CLLD) under the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF). This network brings together Fisheries Local Action Groups (FLAGs), managing authorities, citizens and experts from across the EU to work on the sustainable development of fisheries and coastal areas.
Fisheries areas across the EU are facing significant challenges. The continuous decline in income and employment in the fishing sector has underlined the need for innovative responses that are both sustainable and inclusive. Community-Led Local Development (CLLD) is a tool that enables local fisheries communities to address these challenges by proposing and testing new solutions.
