Support measures

Member States with coasts and marine waters will have to ensure that aquaculture and fishing gear are collected separately for recycling with a national minimum annual collection rate. This can be achieved by offering a sorting system for different materials. The SUPD, however, does not provide a specific collection rate. This has to be delivered by national governments and specific commissions.
