Description
In this project we try to integrate data about marine debris in a large database. more

The data were collected by volunteers during the so-called 'Lenteprikkel' at the Belgian coast, where people collect debris every spring, and the 'fishing for litter'-action where fishing vessels collect waste during their fishing-activities, and take them to shore; and by scientists who did monitoring campaigns at sea to collect or observe the waste in sea and at the coastline. There will also be new monitoring campaigns done by the University of Ghent, who will also do some lab experiments on litter. More detailed information about the tasks can be found under 'Scientific activities'.
