Environmental innovation that serves society

One of the main challenges for our society is to achieve a marine environment in good ecological condition and at the same time make the most fair use of the resources it contains.

ENT tries to drive projects in this direction, integrating in the analysis and the proposals made all the complexity involved in the development of policies related to an environment in which many actors are represented. In recent years, our activity has been focused mainly on the field of fishing and aquaculture, where we have done various projects and investigations on all scales, from local to global.

Part of our philosophy is working with other entities, for this reason we are part of the network MedReAct, a network of Mediterranean organisations orientated to recuperating the Mediterranean ecosystem, and part of Seas at Risk, amon others.
