With the European Union stepping up efforts to address overfishing in the Mediterranean, the latest episode of Ocean visits the Fisheries Restricted Area (FRA) of Jabuka/Pomo Pit, a success story in the Adriatic established to protect essential fish habitats.
Euronews joins a fishing inspection at the Jabuka/Pomo Pit, and meets fishers, inspectors and scientists who collaborated to make this bottom-up conservation effort a success. The episode also hears from Pascal Savouret, the Executive Director of the European Fisheries Control Agency, who suggests ways to further improve the situation in the Mediterranean, as well as from fish sellers at the historic market in Split and small scale fishers at one of the Adriatic islands where the recovery of fish populations spawned a new generation of young fishermen.
