Description

The MECO Project is a Mediterranean collaboration between scientists and the public, including divers, fishermen and the general public, to research, learn, and conserve and improve protection for the sharks and rays of the Mediterranean Sea. MECO (Mediterranean Elasmobranch Citizen Observations) is essentially a network in which information is shared, engaging a wide audience and involving researchers from all over the Mediterranean. (Not to be confused with a marine insurance company amongst many other companies bearing the same word Meco in their title). Contact via Facebook.
