Informative activities about the creation of Coastal Action Groups (GAC, by its initials in Spanish) in the autonomous community of Galicia (2008)

Seeking to establish activities on awareness-raising and dynamic participation on equal opportunities in a Galician fishing sector, Fundación Lonxanet –at the request of Conselleria do Mar of the Government of Galicia– performed different actions which promoted the participation of social agents and fishermen’s associations from the coastal zone. This had the aim of encouraging their involvement in the formation of Grupos de Acción Costera (GAC), identifying possible obstacles and avoiding exclusions or monopolies in their respective constitutions. It should be recalled that GAC is framed in the priority axis number 4, within the Fisheries Operational Programme for 2007/2013.  This project began in February 2008 and ended in November of the same year.
