Many thanks to all participants and beautiful Kolobrzeg!

The 17-18th of October, stakeholders and project partners gathered in Kolobrzeg, Poland, to share and discuss the project results so far. Together, all participants contributed to what became a very giving experience. 

 Most people have only seen ghost nets in the newspapers or on television. We wanted to show them in real life and present its complex solution in a way that was more concrete. That is why we arranged the conference in Kolobrzeg, where we could show real ghost nets collected by our Polish partners, says Vesa Tschernij, project leader of MARELITT Baltic.
