AQUA-LIT Project: preventive measures for averting the discarding of litter in the marine environment from the aquaculture industry

2019 will see s.Pro Sustainable projects GmbH (the founding and managing partner of the SUBMARINER network) 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.

In line with the new EU Strategy for Plastics in a Circular Economy, AQUA-LIT will provide the aquaculture sector with a toolbox that can showcase existing, under construction and already implemented tools, case studies, best practices, as well as a database that creates links between stakeholders for 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 and it will be accessible through an online platform and a mobile app.
