Learn how to monitor marine litter and join the collective effort!

Proper monitoring of our coasts and seas is an important contribution to keeping them litter-free. Therefore, MIO-ECSDE produced a video tutorial on how to monitor marine litter on beaches within the IPA-Adriatic funded DeFishGear project.

The tutorial was designed for the interested practitioner, administrator, professional, student or NGO staff member in order to enhance her/his skills on how to design and implement marine litter monitoring activities on beaches. The methodology showcased has been pilot tested by the DeFishGear project and has been developed based on the ‘Guidance Document on Monitoring of Marine Litter in European Seas’ elaborated by the EU MSFD Technical Sub-Group on Marine Litter and the UNEP/MAP MEDPOL draft Monitoring Guidance Document on Ecological Objective 10: Marine Litter.
