A Pan-European Platform for low impact small-scale fishers

Members

LIFE represents those fishers who have a low environmental impact and a high social and economic value within the communities they support and who support them. Their activity sustains fish stocks, protects the marine environment, and contributes to prosperous coastal communities.

LIFE provides a clear and coherent voice for small-scale fishers who have historically lacked dedicated and effective representation at European level.
