    MARP3

    MARP3 MARine Plastic Pollution in the Arctic: origin, status, costs and incentives for Prevention. The goal of this project is to strengthen the knowledge base on marine litter in the Barents Sea. This is done by providing relevant research and knowledge to raise awareness and recommend methods to maintain a sustainable human activity contributing to less marine littering. Project leader is Norut and SALT holds the responsibility for a workshop on sources to marine litter on Svalbard and a workshop with stakeholders -to reduce marine littering in this area. SALT has also contributed in publishing scientific papers; this one is on sources to marine litter in Norway.

     
    Fishing For Litter

    Fishing For Litter

    Fishing for Litter is a 2 years test project (2016-2017) inviting fishing boats to take part in the clean up of marine litter. The boats collect marine litter that is trapped in their fishing gear. The fishing industry contributes to an enhanced environmental profit and better attitude regarding marine litter. Three big Norwegian fishing harbors have containers for this collected litter.

    Blue Charge

    Blue Charge

    BLUE Charge is a long standing and active outreach project at SALT. It was originally developed, in collaboration with Western Lofoten Secondary School, to educate future fishers and crew in vocational school on a range of topics concerning marine litter and plastics. It started out as a 3-5 day-long dynamic educational program, consisting of seven topics and practical assignments, one of which being a beach cleaning day. This has been successfully implemented at three secondary schools in northern Norway, with plans of expansion.

    Eventually, for a heavier punch, the project aimed to reach beyond schools; to individuals already active within the sectors. An hour-long marine litter education module, to be included in the mandatory STCW safety training for fishermen, was developed. Given all individuals working at sea are required by the STCW convention to complete safety training, along with refreshers every 5-8 years, knowledge of the impacts of marine plastics are sure to reach far and wide. This module is tested and implemented in Lofoten starting during the winter 2018.

    Future steps in this project include translation and implementation of the shorter module into STCW safety training at the Marine Institute of Memorial University, Newfoundland.

    Through the project HAVPLAST, we are also developing video material and creating an online portal to make the whole course available to schools and individuals across the country.
