One of the most important aims of Network is to promote transnational cooperation. We hope the project examples, relevant practices and overview of fisheries local action groups' strategy collected by Estonian Rural- and Fisheries network will help to achieve that goal.

The following publications are also available on paper in limited quantity. If You are interested to have some, please contact us by e-mail: seminar @ maainfo.ee.  If possible we can deliver or hand over the publications during some international network or European Network for Rural Development event.
