An initial analysis of relevant actors was conducted in the AQUA-LIT project with the overall aim to gain a better understanding of the various actors relevant in the context of marine aquaculture litter and advise an effective stakeholder engagement strategy (interactive workshops and stakeholder interviews) in the project. This is also essential for the development of recommendations that will be targeting the appropriate type of actors with the ‘policy for less litter’ set of recommendations, taking into account national, regional, and sea basin dimensions.
Based on the resulting information, a country profile was compiled for the two most extensively studied countries in each of the studied sea basins. The AQUA-LIT country profiles present a description of the different aquaculture stakeholders, categorised by the four different stages in the life cycle of an aquaculture farm:
1) Initiation, 2) Development, 3) Operation and 4) End of life.
