The Mediterranean Sea is one of the most affected areas by marine litter worldwide. Impacts include entanglement and ingestion, bio-accumulation and bio-magnification of toxic substances released from litter items, facilitating the introduction of invasive species and causing damage to benthic habitats. This tool proposes concrete actions to reduce or mitigate marine litter presence in Mediterranean MPAs.
This tool has been developed and/or tested under the project Interreg MED Plastic Busters MPAs and has been incorporated into the MBPC/ENSERES Mediterranean Biodiversity Protection Tools Catalogue.
