Working with the aquaculture sector to prevent marine litter from entering the sea
AQUA-LIT, together with the H2020 projects EuroSea, Jonas and JERICO, signed a cooperation agreement with Blue-Cloud to cooperate in key initiatives in coastal monitoring, noise prevention, aquaculture and ocean forecasting systems.
A healthy ocean is a fundamental prerequisite for a thriving blue economy.
Data and observation are of the essence to achieve and maintain good environmental status. The EMFF has funded several projects addressing environmental concerns such as marine litter, oil spills, chemical pollution, etc, including AQUA-LIT project.
The European Maritime Day took place in Ravenna, Italy last May 19-20th and we were there to discuss the importance of creating opportunities for Women in the Blue Economy in the frame of the launching of CINEA's call in the subject.
Check out the summary video we prepared for you with the main discussions.
Aquaculture Europe '21 "Oceans of Opportunity" is around the corner and we'll be there presenting our toolbox for managing Marine Litter in the Aquaculture sector.
Keep posted for more updates, or if you're planning on going, see you in Madeira!
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!
