About the route

Tuna Route is an EU project co-funded under the EMFF aiming to develop a long-term sustainable and transnational nautical route building on the iconic value, rich heritage and socioeconomic importance of Bluefin tuna.

Mission

Tuna Route aims to set up a long-term international tourism route, from conception to the operative marketing and promotion of labelled tourism products and packages seizing the iconic value of Atlantic Bluefin Tuna.

Tuna Route will at first concentrate efforts on the development of nautical and maritime sustainable tourism. However, the Tuna Route is not restricted to sea-based activities, and intends to include all sectors and expand across the natural distribution of Eastern Atlantic Bluefin Tuna.

Our vision builds on the valorisation of Bluefin tuna natural, cultural and industrial heritage, for world-wide awareness of the Western Mediterranean as a sustainable, high quality and safe destination for nautical tourism.

Tuna Route seeks to facilitate collaboration among public and private entities from local to international level. Such collaboration aims to pool resources to increase visibility, drive product development and improve common branding and marketing, but above all to promote sustainability and excellence.

Regions currently involved

Tuna Route focuses on transnational cooperation for the promotion of thematic tuna-related tourism in Western Mediterranean regions, where tuna has been historically important for socioeconomic development.
Tuna Route is not restricted to the Western Mediterranean, and intends to expand across the natural distribution of Eastern Atlantic Bluefin Tuna. It seeks to create a large and durable international network of tuna-related stakeholders and destinations aiming to collaborate for product development and their joint promotion.
