Norway's largest Fishermen’s organization has decided to step up the fight against littering the ocean
During the Norwegian Fishermen’s Association national meeting, a decision was made to follow a new strategy called “Clean sea, our advantage and shared responsibility”.
The strategy includes increased focus to prevent littering and plastic pollution from the fishing industry. To mention some of the measures:
|Improve clean-up and waste management in the sea and coastal zones|
|Ensure well-functioning waste management in the ports|
|Establish good return and producer responsibility schemes for unsuitable fishing equipment and other waste|
|Prevent littering from the fishing industry in accordance with the fisheries organizations' joint declaration against marine waste|
