The aim of LIFE is to provide a clear and coherent voice at EU level for the previously mainly silent majority of European fishers who are smaller scale and who use low impact fishing gears and methods but have historically lacked dedicated and effective representation in Brussels and at Member State level.
The Platform works via a Management Board of working fishermen who are representatives of their local fishing communities. The daily duties are carried out by the Executive Director with the support of a Brussels-based Secretariat. In addition, LIFE can rely on the expertise of a Mediterranean Coordinator, of a specialist in EU funds and of two Outreach Officers working on the ground with fishermen’s organisations.”
