Tackling Marine Litter – Fishing and Aquaculture Gear

9 December 2021
By Ian Allison

Fishing and aquaculture gear is a global problem when abandoned, lost, or discarded. As marine litter it is harming ecosystems and threatening the marine environment.

Simply put, marine litter represents a failure in product and waste management.

It’s why we’re working with governments and industry to understand the problem and identify innovative solutions to manage waste gear responsibly.
