Working with the aquaculture sector to prevent marine litter from entering the sea


The Action Plans for the Azores islands, Portugal continental and the Canary islands are out!

In AQUA-LIT we want our results to be used by more stakeholders than those from our 3 sea basin focus. That's why we studied the aquaculture context of the outermost regions of the Azores and Canary Islands, and of the Portuguese Atlantic. Based on their context, we focused our transferring of knowledge into actions and recommendations that apply to their particular state of aquaculture production

AQUA-LIT is coming to an end, and despite being sad for all the team, we are very proud and excited for everything we achieved. This is why we decided to make a beautiful recap video summarizing these past 2 years. You cannot miss it, it's a MUST WATCH!
Final meeting with sister marine litter projects
Today, on February 11th, EASME organized the “Sustainable Blue Economy: a systemic approach to tackle Marine Litter” event, to close the EMFF funded projects under which AQUA-LIT was funded. 


Sustainable Blue Economy: a systemic approach to tackle Marine Litter

On the International Day of Women and Girls in Science, EMFF hosted the final meeting with AQUA-LIT, Blue Net, Net Tag, marGnet and Ocean nets. And what better way to celebrate both things, than by having all coordinators being women!
