Indeed, the Torre-Guaceto MPA succeeded in overcoming the crisis between fishers and local authorities concerning the ban on fishing in the MPA when it was established in 2001. With the support of scientists, an agreement between fishers and managers was found to open certain areas to a regulated fishery co-managed by fishers and local authorities. Today, MPA fishers are key players in the definition of management measures and the effects on the resource are visible.
This small project will thus make it possible to finance several meetings between fishers and managers of the two MPAs. The exchanges between these players will enable the sharing of knowledge and will give Albanian players the opportunity to study in the field the management and monitoring methods implemented in the Italian MPA. Albanian protagonists will be able to adapt these experiences to Karaburun-Sazan MPA in order to build a management and sustainable development strategy for fisheries. These exchanges will also strengthen the links between the playes of these two MPAs in the Adriatic, which will enable them to work together on common issues, such as invasive species for example.
