The seafood products and gastro-kitchen learning modules will be one of the important documents which can be a reliable source all over the world. While most meat and chicken products are easily found in most grocery stores, there are no fish products and it is not economical. Therefore, fish is not preferred. Another factor is the fact that people go to more practical dishes especially in big cities. Most families, who don’t want the kitchen to smell, don’t cook fish at home. Another view is the effect of the nutritional culture based on meat and pastry from our ancestors. In the Aegean and the Black Sea, the situation is different. Those who live by the sea consume more fish. This output will impact the national policies on food and safety, providing structural solutions not only to the project regions but to the producers facing similar challenges across the country in the seafood sector. Therefore, the national economy will benefit from the fair and healthy competition by strengthening the small scale fishings, and the underground economy will become less of an issue. The Output 2 activities will improve the social welfare of the rural communities who are earning their lives mainly from seafood practices.
