For the last three years, partners of the MARELITT Baltic project have been working to reduce the impact of derelict fishing gear, ghost nets, in the Baltic Sea. The project has covered many aspects of the problem – such as mapping, retrieval, recycling and prevention. The result of our work is a handbook called The Baltic Sea Blueprint. It is a roadmap on how to approach derelict fishing gear in a sustainable way, both for today and for the future.

It will be presented for the first time at the MARELITT Baltic Final Conference in Stockholm, 20–21st of March, 2019. Together with the project team, stakeholders and experts we will share our newfound knowledge and discuss all issues regarding mitigation measures of ghost fishing in the Baltic Sea.

Welcome to the MARELITT Baltic Final Conference!
Please register before the 28th of February.
