ANTARES is a neutrino telescope located in the Northern hemisphere, in the Mediterranean Sea offering high reconstruction accuracy of neutrino candidates of all flavors. Due to its geographical location, the ANTARES observatory can monitor with large exposure the Southern sky, and with that also neutrino source candidates in the galactic plane with a low energy threshold. The HAWC experiment is a water Cherenkov detector located in Mexico. It observes the high-energy gamma-ray sky with large exposure and field of view, performing a high-sensitivity survey. The current ANTARES dataset, which covers ten years of data, is used to search for all-flavor neutrino emission in accordance with the HAWC gamma-ray sky map. The preliminary results of this analysis are presented.
