AQUA-LIT's North Sea Learning Lab

VLIZ has engaged in the AQUA-LIT project funded by the European Union, aiming at providing the aquaculture sector with a toolbox of preventive measures for averting the discard of litter in the marine environment. 

Considering that aquaculture is the fastest growing food-producing sector with an expansion rate of 8% per year, it is now the time to act in order to prevent the increase of marine litter and to support the removal of the already existing one.  

Thus, the AQUA-LIT project is working on finding solutions and measures for preventing, reducing, removing and recycling marine litter coming from the aquaculture sector in the Mediterranean, North Sea and Baltic regions.  

To achieve this, we believe it is essential to work and cooperate with the entire range of aquaculture stakeholders.
