Amorgorama- becoming a part of the swarm!

(2020) 600€ awarded

With the pilot project Amorgorama the Professional Fishing Association of Amorgos wants to find a sustainable approach to cope with the problems of the continously increasing pollution of the coasts by plastics as well as the overfishing in the Agean Sea.

In order to give the shoals time for regeneration, the fishermen do not want to fish in April and May. In these months most fish species reproduce and this process should be given the necessary time. But the fishermen need a paid job to work the boats during these months.

That is why they want to raise the necessary money by donations to pay the fishermen to clean up as many bays as possible in spring 2020 and at the same time offer the underwater world a break for regeneration.

We are proud contributing to their efforts with a symbolic donation!

COVID-19 UPDATE: The president of the Professional Fishing Association of Amorgos informed us  informed us that sadly they did not manage to raise the amount that they had in mind for most of the fishermen to join this effort, so only a few of them will symbolically run the initiative and showcase as a best practise for other fishermen to follow.
