Make marine conservation projects
financially sustainable

ABOUT

Marine conservation in the Mediterranean Sea faces a lack of financing to ensure the sustainability of its activities. An estimated 700 million € per year is necessary to bridge this financing gap in the Mediterranean Basin.

The BlueSeeds project started in 2018 to ensure marine conservation projects’ sustainability and secure their economic resilience. The BlueSeeds project gathers economists, experts in conservation finance, business managers, fishery scientists and social innovators.
