INDICIT partners (from France, Greece, Italy and Spain) attended to MEDSEALITTER 3rd Steering Committee Meeting and 4th Technical and scientific meeting in Valencia (Spain) May 9th, 10th and 11th 2018.

 

MEDSEALITTER is a project implemented on the Mediterranean basin, specifically dedicated to the MPAs aiming at developing specific marine litter monitoring protocols.

 

Methodologies tested to evaluate macro-plastic pollution at large regional scale as well as more local scale (eg Marine protected areas), macro-plastic ingestion in turtles, micro-plastic ingestion in fishes and polychetae were discussed.

All the partners are now motivated to start the testing period in the field with all stakeholders!
