The growth of fishing in Kavala created an urgent need for one of the three Fisheries Research Institutes (INALE) which operate in Greece today to be located in the Regional Unit. The INALE belongs to the Greek Agricultural Organisation “DIMITRA” (ELGO-DIMITRA), an agency that is overseen by the Ministry of Agriculture.

The Institute opened in 1995 and its research focus is on aquatic environments, such as inland and transitional waters, marine fishing, using fishing products and aquacultures, as well as on educational programmes for producers and technical staff, and programmes to promote scientific knowledge.
