Knowledge measures

Enforce marine litter monitoring in aquaculture plants using the correlation between biomass and material losses. Especially for mussel farming, biomass loss provoked by storms or any other environmental cause can be easily quantified by farmers. This can be used to estimate the gear loss (e.g. mussels nets) by correlating the two factors.
