AQUA-LIT project is the first EMFF we coordinated, which focused on working together with the aquaculture stakeholders from the Mediterranean Sea, the Baltic Sea and the North Sea, to develop a toolbox of solutions, measures and recommendations for handling better marine litter from a prevention to a recycling state, further aiming at making the aquaculture industry a leading sector on addressing this global and escalating issue.
Besides the more than 400 of ideas and solutions to tackle marine litter; AQUA-LIT’s toolbox also includes information on which ports have the facilities to receive waste, a database of funding opportunities to create a project on marine litter, as well as a marine litter inventory that provides an overview of the available knowledge on marine litter originating from the aquaculture sector, a set of policy recommendations for the EU and lastly, specific action plans for outermost regions. The toolbox is available online and as an app.
