AQUA-LIT’s main objective is to provide the aquaculture sector with a toolbox that can provide existing, upcoming and already implemented tools, case studies, best practices, a database and links between stakeholders for addressing the 3 main components of marine littering: prevention & reduction, monitoring & quantification, and removal & recycling.
The toolbox will be focused on three sea basins: the Mediterranean, the North Sea and the Baltic Sea regions and it will be accessible through an online platform and a mobile app.
Furthermore, AQUA-LIT will assess the current policies and give policy recommendations for better decision-making in the aquaculture sector, create a transferability plan for sharing all the results and knowledge obtained to EU overseas territories, like the Azores, and it will create an exploitation strategy for setting up local working groups that can ensure the sustainability of the project after its termination
