Working together to restore the health of the Mediterranean Sea

The Med Sea Alliance is a campaign movement created in 2020 to bring together non-government organizations and networks working to improve the health and productivity of the Mediterranean Sea.

It is the first time such a diverse alliance of organizations is collaborating in support of a common strategy to tackle overfishing and destructive fishing in the Mediterranean. 

The Med Sea Alliance is creating a movement that will generate momentum across civil society to call on decision-makers to build sustainable fisheries in the Mediterranean Sea.

We don’t have time for just another project – we have to make the Med Sea Alliance powerful and be the one that will catalyse the change.

Our Vision

A Mediterranean Sea with a rich and resilient ecosystem, where the rules and practice of fishing support the health of the marine environment for generations to come.

Our Mission

Together we will achieve a demonstrable shift in fisheries management towards restoring the health of the Mediterranean Sea and its existence as a sustainable fishery, and produce a robust and equitable model for sustainable management of a high pressure fishing region.

We would like people across the world to look at what is happening in the Mediterranean as an inspiration and say: ‘if they can do it in the most overfished sea in the world, then we can do it here too’.
