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 2021 and at the same time offer the underwater world a break for regeneration.
We are proud contributing to their efforts!
The crowdfunding campaign has just STARTED! The time has come for all to support the project Amorgorama withour contribution!
The initiative aims to raise more funds in order for the local fishermen to cease fishing during April and May (when most fish species reproduce) and turn to collecting litter from coasts of Amorgos that are only accessible by sea.
