Our company is leading a Fishery improvement project (FIP) for the Blue Swimming Crab Portunus segnis (Forskål, 1775) (family Portunidae). This program is the first and only in Tunisia being reported on Fishery progress.

By December 2027, our FIP aims to:
  * Improve the status of the BSC stock (transition to sustainability, stock rebuilding).
  * Define stock boundaries and status, and implement management measures. 
  * Propose and draft harvest control rules.
  * Improve the ecological impact of the BSC fishery.
  * Change fishing practices (combat destructive and unsustainable practices).
  * Decrease impacts to fishery ecosystem (less bycatch, less damages to habitat..).
  * Collect and analyze data on discards and ETP species interactions.
