Aquaculture and fisheries related plastic debris

Aquaculture produces a range of marine debris, depending on the product and location. A review of aquaculture as a source of marine litter in the North, Baltic and Mediterranean Seas identified 64 different items, 19 of which were unique to aquaculture (Sandra et al. 2020). Estimates of the amount of aquaculture waste entering the oceans vary widely, depending on the methodologies used. For example, in the European Economic Area loss estimates have varied from a low of 3,000 tonnes to 41,000 tonnes per year (Sherrington et al. 2016).
