AQUA-LIT at the Aquaculture Advisory Council

On June 6th, the working group 3 of the Aquaculture Advisory Council held a meeting in Brussels to discuss horizontal issues in the aquaculture sector. The AAC invited several experts to learn and debate on wetlands, data collection, marine spatial planning, seaweed and marine litter for which AQUA-LIT was responsible. 


Our Coordinator introduced AQUA-LIT's mission to the increase the understanding, awareness and availability of solutions that tackle marine littering coming from the aquaculture sector, and she also presented our first results after six months in the project:

1) The marine litter inventory, a solid knowledge base on marine litter from aquaculture activities.

2) Regional maps on aquaculture litter: Sea basin maps generated for visualising information on the geographic position of aquaculture facilities, in combination with the quantitative data of aquaculture related litter.

Keep posted as these results will become available in our website soon!
