Strategy

The Balearic Sea is one of the best-conserved ecosystems in the entire Mediterranean, but it is also one of those under most pressure. Marilles focusses its work along seven strategic lines.

Five of these are aimed at reducing the impact of different pressures on the marine environment:

  • Professional fishing
  • Recreational fishing
  • Pollution
  • Boating sector
  • Tourism and demographic pressure

The other two are geared towards strengthening the “levers for change”:

  • Improving marine protected areas
  • Familiarising people with the sea
