LAST CALL! Training on sustainable aquaculture practices - for young women from the Mediterranean and the Black Sea

Following the success of its first training for young women in aquaculture in the Mediterranean and the Black Sea, held in 2022 in Tunisia, the General Fisheries Commission for the Mediterranean (GFCM) of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) is organizing a second edition in Greece on 11–19 June 2023

This training is the direct result of a collaboration between the GFCM, the Federation of European Aquaculture Producers (FEAP) and the Hellenic Aquaculture Producers Organization (HAPO). 

The training will consist of a series of theoretical sessions held by aquaculture experts from the region to build a foundation of best practices, highlight the importance of the involvement of women in the sector, share success stories, and showcase the GFCM approach for the sustainable development of aquaculture; and field visits in Greece to highlight Mediterranean aquaculture and different environments, species and production systems. 

Participants should meet the following criteria:

  • under 40 years of age;
  • basic knowledge on aquaculture (production, research, administration, civil society, etc.);
  • and  ability to swim.
