For Centuries, fishing in the Mediterranean has been the livelihood of the coastal inhabitants and the base for the "Mediterranean diet". Since the 1980’s, the effects of various human impacts on the environment, its ecosystem and living resources have been inevitable. A large part of the fish stocks have since begun to collapse. According to the EU Environment Agency, more than 65% of the stocks are now below their safe ecological limits. This endangers the entire ecosystem and productivity for future generations. In addition, there are other warning signals such as massive plastic pollution, ghost fishing and, last but not least, the effects of climate change. According to recent UN studies, the Mediterranean region is warming 20 to 30% faster than the global average. As part of human consequences fisherman in the Mediterranean struggle to make a living. Small scale fishermen have decreased in recent years.
