In order to address marine litter, it is crucial to look at our litter and waste behaviours and to understand the pathways of litter into our aquatic environments. In this policy action paper, we consider the impact and the potential solutions for tackling land based sources of marine litter. Marine litter policy action paper. Exploring the potential for adopting alternative materials to reduce marine plastic litter 05 June It is intended to encourage entrepreneurs, ‘startups’ and established businesses - as well as researchers in the fields of materials science, engineering, agronomy and related fields – to explore more effective and sustainable products.   The database's analysis tools allow all of these groups to create global estimates of which animal groups are reportedly hardest hit by .

Introduction. Marine pollution by anthropogenic litter is a world-wide issue, causing multiple ecological impacts (e.g.

Gregory,Rochman et al., ).Anthropogenic litter enters the marine environment from sea-based sources, like vessel-traffic and fisheries, or from land-based sources, such as coastal tourism or river run-off (Derraik,Andrady, ).Cited by: Litter is found in all the world's oceans and seas, even in remote areas far from human contact and obvious sources of the problem.

The continuous growth in the amount of solid waste thrown away, and the very slow rate of degradation of most items, are together leading to a gradual increase in marine litter found at sea, on the seafloor and coastal shores.

Marine litter originates from many sources and causes a wide spectrum of environmental, economic, safety, health and cultural impacts. For example, marine litter can cause harm to sealife if ingested or even death if a marine mammal becomes entangled in litter.

Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD), the Regional Action Plan for Marine Litter was adopted in As a part of the marine debris finds its source on land and enters the marine environment via rivers and waterways, the plan also includes an action on riverine litter and the need to cooperate with the river or river basin.

The occurrence of plastic waste in the environment has become a central topic on the global agenda. Recently, significant attention has been paid to this issue, with a particular focus on small plastic particles, microplastics, in the marine has resulted in a large volume of scientific research and public and media attention to the presence and risks associated with.

Marine litter consists of mostly very slowly degradable waste items — items made of persistent materials such as plastic, polystyrene, metals and glass — from a large number of different sources.

Marine litter can blow around, remain floating on the water surface; drift in the water column; get entangled on shallow, tidal bottoms; or sink. Anthropogenic litter in the riverine environment Apart from the validation of the citizen science ap-proach, the volunteer surveys brought insight into the complex subject of riverine litter.
