Knowledge wave on Marine Litter from Aquaculture Sources

Here you will be able to find 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. In order to understand the potential sources of aquaculture litter, this section provides a profound overview of the different types of aquaculture facilities in these areas and the important stakeholders active in the sector.

Marine Litter inventory

 

A solid knowledge base on marine litter from aquaculture activities. This database includes information on the main types of debris as well as the quantities in which they occur in the marine environment, identifying specific sources of marine littering coming from aquaculture activities.

 

Regional maps on aquaculture litter

 

Check our sea basin maps generated for visualising information on the geographic position of aquaculture facilities, in combination with the quantitative data of aquaculture-related litter. These maps are provided for the three sea basins and give an initial indication of the source-sink story of aquaculture-related litter, which are a useful tool for the various stakeholders and policy makers.
 

 

Players at Play

 

Dig into the wide range of actors; individuals, groups and organisations operating in different stages of an aquaculture farm lifecycle (Initiation, Development, Operation and Maintainance, End of Life) and at a variety of spatial and governance scales.
