Meeting with Director-General João Machado of DG MARE


On 8 March, Olivier Le Nézet, President of Blue Fish Europe, and Nicolas Teisseire, Director of Blue Fish Europe, met with the new Director General of DG MARE, João Machado.

This meeting was a great opportunity to present the activities carried out by Blue Fish Europe to the new Director-General. They discussed Blue Fish Europe’s actions during COP21 back in December, and Olivier Le Nézet and Nicolas Teisseire presented two upcoming actions led by Blue Fish Europe: the “Clean Sea & Beach” (Plage & mer propres) operation, that will be taking place throughout France on 4 June in cooperation with Comptoirs de la mer; and the Blue Fish Data project.

We hope that this meeting was a first step towards greater collaboration between Blue Fish Europe and DG MARE
