    Who is involved in the DeFishGear Project?

    Seven countries embracing Adriatic Sea are involved in the DeFishGear project (Albania, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Croatia, Greece, Italy, Montenegro and Slovenia). The DeFishGear project is implemented by a multi-disciplinary team comprising 16 institutions which include academia, research institutes, local and national authorities from all the countries involved. Multi-disciplinary, coordinated and strongly attached partnership reinforces the substantial footprint of the DeFishGear project on the path towards a litter-free Adriatic Sea.
