FLAG in a nutshell (FARNET factsheet)


The Fishery group (kalatalousryhmä) promotes the implementation of programmes within the fisheries section

To implement the fisheriers programme within Satakunta the LEADER groups, supervised by Leader Ravakka, have founded a fishery group. 

The fishery group's tasks are:

  • keep track of the fulfillment of the fishery programmes
  • activate the area in order to be able to execute the programmes
  • give advice and enhance the good fishery programmes through funding
  • process the funding applications and give statements to the ELY-centre regarding the applications for funding of different fishery programmes

The fishery group's development goals

There are five targets within the programme:

  1. Rise of processing and usage of the primary production of fish.
  2. Improvement of the local fisheries' image.
  3. Improvement of the fishery infrastructure and means of production.
  4. Increase the knowledge and networking of the operators in the area.
  5. Increase tourism related to fishing.

The fishery groups within Bothnian Sea and lake Pyhäjärvi also implement the European Maritime and Fishery Fund goals: preparation for climate change, innovation and consideration of environmental values. External and internal communication is very important for the local fishery groups.
