Action to combat marine litter from aquaculture


Improving procedures for work at the edge of the netpen is one example of action that can prevent the loss of equipment during work. There is also a need for improved waste management and NOFIR is collaborating with the aquaculture industry to collect discarded tools and production equipment. A number of companies within this industry are actively participating in clean-up operations, including through the financing of beach clean-ups. Several stakeholders are also working to invest in equipment that will lead to less microplastics.
