PRIZEFISH

Piloting of eco-innovative fishery supply-chains to market added-value Adriatic fish products

The PRIZEFISH project idea builds on the rationale to implement a cross-border, territorial and socio-economic developmental change in the cooperative renewable exploitation of Adriatic fishery resources and consequently in the long-term benefits on the Adriatic marine ecosystems. Adriatic fishery resources are shared and exploited by coastal economic communities. As for most Mediterranean stocks, they suffer of overfishing or severe exploitation and decline risks. Common Fisheries Policy recommends to implementing medium-term strategy for sustainability, based on strong scientific/socio-economic analyses and innovative actions that can empower smallscale fishermen and fishery operators to adopt low-impact fishing methods. Common Organisations of Markets recommends cross-border cooperation among fishers towards sustainable fishing, matching market demands and consumer attitudes, as well creating innovative added-value seafood products that can penetrate with success EU and non-EU markets. PRIZEFISH builds on knowledge that were capitalized on abundant synergies with several previous and ongoing cooperation projects in the fishery sector its overall objective to tackle the dual territorial challenge for Italian and Croatian Adriatic fishing SMEs and Producer Organizations (POs) to be more sustainable and to increase their economic competitiveness in the seafood markets, by developing and piloting innovative fishery products with added-value given by ecolabels fulfilling requirements of environmental, economic and social sustainability. This goal will be achieved through a three-pillar approach (High content of research & innovation, Industry-driven and market penetration and Capitalization in fishery-based communities) and a transnational, balanced IT-HR partnership built on the quadruple helix approach: University & Research Institutes; Fishing SMEs & POs, Territorial development bodies and no-profit organizations/NGOs. Accordingly, three main Specific Objectives, each associated to a Thematic WP were fixed: SO1. Key-enabling technologies for environmental-economic sustainable Adriatic fishery, to improve the framework conditions of Adriatic fishery. SO1 is targeted by WP3-Piloting of sustainable and eco-certified fishery productions. SO2. Enabling SMEs to produce eco-labelled added-value Adriatic seafood, to enhance the competitiveness of the Adriatic fishery industry to become more sustainable, better managed and more efficient than today. SO2 is targeted by WP4-Innovating tools and processes for added-value Adriatic fishery products. SO3. Increasing Adriatic SMEs and POs competitiveness to penetrate fishery EU/non EU markets, filling the gap between fishery production and marketing of ecolabelled products. SO3 is targeted by WP5-Building up value chain and marketing of Adriatic eco-innovative fishery products.
