Other Media | EuropaAzul: 'Upcycling the Oceans' relies on Satlink technology to combat floating marine litter

Wednesday, April 03, 2024

'Upcycling the Oceans' relies on Satlink technology to combat floating marine litter in protected areas of the Spanish Levant. The project, promoted by the Ecoalf and Ecoembes Foundation, reinforces its commitment to the cleaning and conservation of marine ecosystems through a new pilot project. It consists of the deployment of Satlink technology buoys, equipped with GPS location systems that can be attached to floating waste to monitor it and facilitate its collection.

This project pursues the double objective of understanding the frequency with which this garbage is found in the vicinity of protected areas, as well as the creation of a collection system before it impacts them.

Wednesday, April 03, 2024

Volunteers from Scottish salmon farms cleared away more than 23 tonnes of litter from Highlands and islands beaches last year as part of efforts to keep the areas where they live and work clean.

Salmon farmers take part in regular beach cleans to ensure beaches and coastlines are free from litter and aquaculture debris. While some of the beach litter was related to aquaculture, most was not, and had either been washed up on the shore or left behind by tourists and other visitors.

Other Media | La Voz de Galicia: The United Kingdom tries to develop a commercial fishery with its quota of bluefin tuna

Tuesday, April 02, 2024

It is not a fishery that attracted the British fleet when the country was in the community club, but whether it was, and as a contracting party to the Iccat (Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tuna), the United Kingdom has 66.15 tons of bluefin tuna (Thunnus thynnus) and is willing to use them more than for recreational activity, as it has been doing until now. Thus, it has prepared a plan for this year in which it plans to authorize up to 13 vessels to develop a commercial test fishery. Reserve 39 tons of that variety of tuna for this purpose. 16 will be available to hobbyists and the remainder will be reserved for tagging programs and to cover UK bycatch.
