Montenegro, October 17th, 2017. The 41st session of the General Fisheries Commission for the Mediterranean (GFCM) has adopted today the EU proposal for the establishment of a Fisheries Restricted Area in the Jabuka/Pomo Pit banning dermal fisheries.

The EU proposal, based on the work of MedReAct and the Recovery Adriatic Project, creates three fishing areas in the Pit, one closed to all demersal fisheries (bottom trawling, set longliners, traps) and two other where fishing effort will be significantly restricted.

” The protection by the GFCM of the Jabuka/Pomo Pit  is a milestone  decision ” said Domitilla Senni, from MedReAct – “showing that  progress can be achieved even in areas heavily exploited by fisheries. We congratulate the  GFCM, the EU  and all those scientists that have long worked for the recovery of this area and of the  Adriatic Sea”
