Plastic in the European Arctic
The Norwegian Polar Institute have published a report regarding marine litter in the Artic. For the Arctic, which is far from the industrialized and highly populated areas, marine plastic litter is an ongoing and increasing problem. However, much of the litter is probably transported from denser populated areas in Europe and beyond by the sea currents. This emphasizes the importance of both local and regional cooperation, also for marine litter from the fishing industry.
