Clean Nordic Oceans second workshop will be held in October 23-25 on beutifull Runde environmental center close to Ålesund in Norway. The first workshop will deal with lost gear, ghost gear and fishery related marine litter. The second workshop will include reception, handling and potential recycling of discarded fishing gear and ghost gear.
While the impacts of microplastics in marine ecosystems have been reported in the literature since the 1970s, many questions remain open. MICRO 2018 provides an opportunity to share available knowledge, fill in gaps, identify new questions and research needs, and develop commitments to operationalise solutions; MICRO 2018 will be a chance to reconvene, share what we have learned, and generate momentum for the work that remains to be done.
