GHOST at the round table "Liber-A-Mare” Marine litter: the issue and the strategies

On the occasion of the Venetian stage of Goletta Verde (the historic vessel of Legambiente), a round table on marine litter was held in Caorle (Venice, Italy) on August 8th. The event, organized by the local Legambiente section, saw the participation of scientific experts, operators of the fisheries sector, local administrators, port authorities, plastic recycling companies and environmental associations who presented the most up-to-date information on the presence and impacts of marine litter along the Italian marine coastal areas and the technical and regulatory measures available to deal with the problem of their accumulation. During the meeting, it was stressed the need for a coordination between the various stakeholders in order to promote initiatives that could ensure a better management of marine litter through prevention, collection and material recycling actions.

Nicoletta Nesto (GHOST team) participated in this important event by presenting the strategies developed within the project to prevent and mitigate the loss and the abandonment of fishing gear, in order to share experiences and contribute to the discussion on how to deal with the marine litter issue.
