We believe in and create collaboration and circularity

The process starts with the vital collaboration of the island's fishermen's associations, whose fishermen deposit the broken or damaged nets in the containers. We then manage its logistics of collection and storage. From here, the revitalisation through the artistic and craft union comes into action. A part of the fishing nets are taken to the Menorca Foundation for People with Disabilities for their segregation and organisation. The Foundation is, in fact, a fundamental part of the process, since they facilitate and speed up the productive process for the artisans and artists.

In words of Rebecca Morris, executive director of Menorca Preservation, "PescArt Menorca was born from the desire to promote a fully collaborative circular economy initiative, and we couldn't be happier with the collaborations and response we are having."

The revitalisations and awareness actions reach the public through different training organisations, especially primary schools, institutes and professional training centers, as well as Cáritas and the Red Cross, with whom we develop informative workshops and training courses for employment.

Innovation is also part of the project: we explore different outlets for the networks together with the BIT Foundation, such as its use as a filament for 3D printers.


The boats fish using fishing nets

Fishing nets are usually made of plastic materials.


Fishermen use the nets

Until they are in bad conditions, when they decide to throw them away.


Fishing nets in containers

The fishermen deposit the nets in the containers installed for this purpose in the ports of Ciutadella and Fornells.



When necessary, the project organises the collection of the nets and their transfer to the warehouse.



The fishing nets are classified and stored, and their dynamisation begins through artistic and craft guilds.


Foundation for People with Disabilities

Nets that have elements such as floats, ropes, etc. They are taken to the Foundation for People with Disabilities for segregation. Both the Carlos Mir Multipurpose Center, in Maó, and the S'Auba Occupational Center, in Ciutadella, are actively involved in the project.


Artisans and artists

People from the arts and crafts sector collect fishing nets and their elements to begin the creative process.


The creations

And so they create authentic beauties: handbags, bags, necklaces, earrings, candle holders, tapestries, lamps...
