Within the Phase 2 “Identification and description of the degree of representation within the MEDAC”, an analysis of the MEDAC activities was performed, examining the texts of all the MEDAC meetings reports, opinions and letters issued from its foundation and extrapolating the discussions directly or indirectly concerning Small-Scale fisheries.
Several meetings and interviews with the MEDAC representatives were organized in order to explore the main issues of the sector.
