On Monday, 21st November, at the Universidad Politécnica de València, CEMAS held the conference “Food Systems, Heritage and Sustainability in the Mediterranean” with the aim of raising awareness about small-scale fisheries and aquaculture.
CEMAS Director Vicente Domingo was in charge of the opening ceremony of the meeting, together with Amparo Pérez Roda, FAO Fishery Officer; Alberto San Bautista, Director of the School of Agricultural Engineering and Natural Environment; Alejandro Ramón, Minister for Agriculture, Sustainable Food and Vegetable Gardens of the City of Valencia; and Isaura Navarro, Minister for Agriculture, Rural Development, Climate Emergency and Ecological Transition.
Throughout the three round tables that structured the event, high-level experts expressed their concern about the continuation of the sector due to the lack of generational replacement. They also stressed the importance of improving the perception of marine culture to promote progress and highlighted the importance of preserving environmental values through more effective measures.
