“Mercato alla Voce” in Heraklion

For the time being we are in discussion with the authorities

that have under their responsibility the existent traditional
market (Mr. Antonakakis – Vice President of the Heraklion
Port Authority and the fishermen of Heraklion city who operate
this fish market and are willing to make suggestions for the
better promotion of the traditional market).

16/10/08 17
The fish market is located in
one of the most tourist
places of Heraklion city. It is
almost in the gate of the
Venetian Fort of Koules,
which especially during the
summer season attracts a
huge number of tourists.

Below we mention the conclusions that
resulted from the informative meetings with the
fishermen and the authorities. :

The informative meeting of MeSFiDE and THON.DOC

was attended by representatives of institutions and
fishery associations. At the meeting, the two European
projects MeSFiDE and THON.DOC, concerning the
fishery sector, were presented along with their
objectives. The problems associated with the coastal
fishery in the Hellenic space and in the local area were
also discussed.

More specifically, the issues that should be taken into

16/10/08 21
Harmonisation of the national legislation with that of the
European Community. Legislative readjustment of the
piscatorial periods.

The fact that the young people do not tend to become

occupied in fishery. The majority of the personnel
working in fishing boats are immigrants.

The insufficient education of the fishermen, which may

lead to the unintentional damage of the marine
ecosystem (fishing of protected species, fishing of small
fishes due to the use of small nets etc.)

Over fishing.
16/10/08 22
Sea Pollution by chloride from the swimming-pools of
the hotels and by the waste water produced by the olive-
oil factories.

Fishermen from other countries make use of a more

developed technology. Larger piscatorial ships are used
and thus bigger quantities are fished in international

Lack of a fish-pier within the boundaries of Heraklion


The rules for hygiene are not usually followed at the

fishing markets.
16/10/08 23
Insufficient representation of the fishermen in their

Mesarra's gulf has a severe pollution problem.

For the above issues, the following were proposed:

For the legislative reformation we should address to the

Ministry of Agriculture, which is responsible for the
legislation that refers to the fishermen.

16/10/08 24
To create a School of Fishery in which the fishermen will
have the opportunity to learn the suitable piscatorial
periods for the different fish species and the fish biology.
In this way, they will be well informed about the
reproduction periods of each fish and they will be able to
avoid fishing these species during the forbidden periods.

To create a Registry of Fishermen, in which only the

professionals will be included. Funding subsidy will be
given only to the professional fishermen.

16/10/08 25
To aid fish farming development in Cretan waters by the
consortium of fishermen.

To create a fish-pier, with suitable storing facilities and

space for sailing fish. The fishermen would prefer the
central facilities to be based in Heraklion, and a branch
to be created at the southern region of the island.

16/10/08 26
To continue the efforts currently active at European
level, regarding the coding of piscatorial tools, in order to
be clarified which tools are permitted for use and which
are not.

To create the proper conditions, in order the profession

of fisherman to become competitive and profitable, thus
motivating young people enter this profession.

Subsidies have to be provided to fishermen whose boats

or equipment have been destroyed due to bad weather
conditions or by big fishes.

16/10/08 27
Fishermen, having smaller boats, should be entitled to
receive financial support in order to purchase larger
fishing boats for their profession to become viable.

Producers need to be grouped into organisations, for the

management of fish catches in the fish market. In this
way, they can claim better prices and also to negotiate
more favourable legislation for them.

Establishment of a “Maritime Week” with the event of

“Fisherman’s Feast”, to strengthen the relationship
between fishermen and consumers.
