WATCH how the AQUA-LIT project helps to avert the discarding of marine litter

The s.Pro Sustainable projects is working together with 6 partners from Hungary, Portugal, Belgium, Spain, and France on a new project, AQUA-LIT, aiming to combat marine litter resulting from aquaculture activities. WATCH this animated VIDEO introducing the problem of marine litter, the way maritime sector contributes to aquaculture and the role of the AQUA-LIT project. 

 
Since January 2019 (in line with the new EU Strategy for Plastics in a Circular Economy), AQUA-LIT project has been providing the aquaculture sector with a toolbox addressing the three main components of marine littering: prevention and reduction, monitoring and quantification, removal and recycling. The scope of the toolbox will encompass three sea basins: the Mediterranean Sea, the North Sea and the Baltic Sea basins and it will be accessible through an online platform and a mobile app.
