Thanks to the economic-institutional cooperation activity carried out over the years by the Fishing District, with the support of the Sicilian Region, the Mediterranean Fisheries Observatory, it was possible to strengthen the initiative for the promotion and development of the district model among the economic operators of these areas, for the creation of a widespread well-being among the populations.
In light of the changed economic-political scenarios that have characterized the coastal countries, Sicily finds itself playing a leading role in the space of international cooperation in the Mediterranean basin. The Blue Economy is the economy of individual and collective responsibility, which starts from the sea, from Sicily, but which does not end in the sea and with the sea.
In fact, this development model does not only concern fishing, but extends to all production chains, from agro-industry, to manufacturing, to tourism. The Blue Economy stems from the classic concept of sustainable development, but goes further, developing towards four specific guidelines of sustainability: economic, social, environmental and cultural. Blue Sea Land is much more than an Expo: it is a laboratory that discloses all the fields of application of the Blue Economy, through scientific meetings, cultural events and shows, taste workshops and technological innovation.
