AQUA-LIT - helping to avert the discarding of marine litter: animated video published

s.Pro is working together with 6 partners from Hungary, Portugal, Belgium, Spain, and France on the AQUA-LIT project, aiming to combat marine litter resulting from aquaculture activities. Watch this animated video introducing the problem of marine litter; the way maritime sectors contribute to aquaculture litter; and the role of the AQUA-LIT project. 

 
Since January 2019 (in line with the new EU Strategy for Plastics in a Circular Economy), the 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; and removal and recycling. The scope of the Toolbox will encompass three sea basins: the Mediterranean Sea, the North Sea and the Baltic Sea basins The Toolbox will be made available through an online platform and a mobile app.
