In blue: sustainable tourism
"Tourism activities are sustainable when they are developed in a tourist area for an unlimited time, in a way which does not alter the environment, whether natural, social or artistic, and does not prevent or inhibit the development of other social and economic activities ".

Benefits for Tourists
We want to raise awareness and encourage sustainable and high quality holiday, by promoting “Cultural and environmentally sustainable packages” related to fishing tourism in the Adriatic Sea. Our ecofriendly holiday packages are designed to support the local fishing community by building an effective synergy between the several offers of local operators. Our goal is the environmental, social and economic sustainability of our land, from individual companies to supply chains, to promote a high quality tourism.
Our goal is to reduce the environmental impact of tourism, by means of a better distribution of tourists on the territory. We want to boost fishing tourism, educate people to get to know marine biodiversity, the seasonal nature of local fishes and to respect the marine ecosystem. The Adriatic Sea works as a connecting point to re-discover our identity, promote local products, art, culture and nature. We promote high quality facilities and services that have low environmental impact, zero food waste. We also advocate a healthy and sustainable eating style, which aims at rediscovering our local fish.
