ABOUT THE INVENTORY
As part of our background research work, we set to the task of providing an overview of the available knowledge on marine litter originating from the aquaculture sector and reported in the marine environment of the North Sea region, the Mediterranean region, and the Baltic region.
This litter inventory was generated by a genuine screening of the available literature and litter databases (e.g. OSPAR, HELCOM, Marine Litter Watch) and will be extended during the course of the AQUA-LIT project on the basis of discussions with stakeholders and aquaculture farmers.
If you are interested in reading the full report, then we invite you to download our deliverable "Knowledge wave on marine litter from aquaculture sources".
WAYS TO DISCOVER
For you to explore the inventory better, we have created multiple versions.
The first one is a downloadable and highly-visual version that you might have seen already in our newsletter or Instagram.
You can access it by clicking this image.
As for our online versions, you can look into our Marine Litter Inventory by accessing the menu below this page and look for the information by region or country, by type of item, or access the full table. This long spreadsheet contains all the information available and you can filter the results by material, sea basin, country, item observed, etc.
We hope you find it useful!
