Prizefish does not give up. Despite the lockdown, the project sails towards its destination

Prizefish, a Territorial Cooperation project financed by the Interreg Italy-Croatia Programme 2014-2020, keeps up with the implementation of its research activities. The project focuses on the collaboration between research entities, fisheries sector operators and regional territorial authorities from Italy and Croatia, and aims at fostering an eco-innovative approach to the Adriatic Sea fishery supply chains, with a view of promoting high added-value solutions.

About one year after its launching, the project Prizefish, co-funded under the Interreg CBC Italy-Croatia Programme 2014-2020 within the “Blue Innovation” pillar, keeps making his way towards its goals despite the Covid-19 pandemic.
The main goal of the project is the development of a new approach to the fishery supply chain for the Northern Adriatic Sea fishery and aquaculture product, through eco-certification and integration between more sustainable fishing practices and technologies and higher security and quality standards in fish product.
The project fully engages regional territorial institutions and public entities, researchers, fishing producer organisations from both the Italian and Croatian coastlines, in the implementation of activities to enhance the added-value in fisheries supply chain and market, mostly in a European and international dimension.

As the project slogan claims, <Fishing better, gaining more, respecting the Adriatic Sea!>

Prizefish can boast the collaboration and the engagement of fourteen partners from the fishing industry, the research sector, the public sector and some producers’ organisations; the Department of Biological, Geological and Environmental Sciences (BIGeA) of the University of Bologna has been appointed as a Lead Partner.
The Emilia-Romagna Region tasks will be the dissemination of the project goals and outcomes, the attendance to meetings and webinars for the fisheries operators, in order to find out and share new solutions for the qualification fish product supply chain, with particular reference to the aftermath of the sanitary crisis which affected profoundly the fishery market.

The Cross-Border Cooperation Programme Interreg Italy-Croatia 2014-2020 which supports the project with a co-funding from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) will provide up to 2.65 million €, while the overall project value is of 3.12 million euros. Emilia-Romagna Region as a project partner will be financed for the PRIZEFISH activities on its territory the sum of 123,060 €.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemics, however, some of the activities needed to be rescheduled.
During the Project Steering Committee meeting held last May, the partners confirmed their engagement to carry on all the project activities as previously agreed, with spirit of collaboration and with a strategic vision. It was also agreed to ask the European Commission for a shift in the project closure dates to be able to fully respect the engagements taken. 
Looking forward to the next events which will be held online, it will be possible for the public to keep up with the Prizefish activities on those social channels:
