About Sciaena

Sciaena is a Non-Governmental Organization that aims to promote a healthy marine environment through the promotion of sustainable ways of exploitation, the involvement of the population and political intervention.

We believe in raising awareness as a way of creating a bridge between scientific knowledge and society, valuing the opinion and activity of all stakeholders, to develop action measures and integrated strategies. We are, therefore, an open door to communication, information, training, education and knowledge.
