What has been said about PROJECT MENORCA in the specialized press?
Seeking healthier waters in Menorca and beyond. Dominique Afacan. 16 August 2018. Read this article.
“Alongside efforts to grow the biosphere reserve, Project Menorca will also be focusing on sustainable fishing, single use plastic reduction, education and more. One of their initiatives is the development of a network of innovative ‘eco-moorings,’ which will protect seagrass beds and improve the environmental impact of tourism. There are also plans to introduce a ‘code of conduct’ to the island’s 150 fishermen, a model that Blue Marine has already had success with in Lyme Bay in England. “It’s hard to close down an entire area to fishing altogether but what you can do is encourage sustainable fishing,” explains Moore. “Creating marine protected areas and establishing methods of sustainable fishing usually go hand in hand.”
“The project has plenty more objectives besides, including the removal of plastic waste and harmful ‘ghost’ fishing nets from the water and the distribution of thousands of recyclable bags to local fishmongers.”
