Causes of marine plastics from aquaculture


The majority of littering from the aquaculture industry takes place during work and when conducting activities next to the netpen, while some littering occurs from vessels. Loss of ropes and tools takes place due to inadequate procedures, but also due to wear and tear, which leads to marine litter. Another invisible source of plastic in the sea originating from production equipment is microplastics, but the extent is uncertain.
