eTWINNING PROJECT: BLUE DIAMONDS

During this course 2018 – 2019 our school is participating in an international eTwinning project together with other three European schools in Croatia, Portugal and Italy. The class in charge of sharing the materials with the other schools is group 1C from the course of Technician in Restaurant Services.

ABOUT THE PROJECT

The project aims to explore fish in Mediterranean region, its importance to human race as a rich nutrition source. Ecological impact to fish species in different Mediterranean regions will be considered, too. We will include the Atlantic Ocean because of geographical position of Portugal. Since fish is an integral part of the state economy, we will analyse it focusing on its nutritive, geographical, ecological, gastronomical and historical points of view. Analysing these aspects, we can compare differences and similarities between most common sea fish species in every country involved in our project.
