Workshop on Marine Litter

Workshop on Marine Litter (BAMAR 2020)

BAMAR is born as a response to the current concern on marine litter within the scientific community and in the society at large. Marine litter is a highly complex subject that is urgent and necessary to tackle from diverse and complementary points of view.

 

The answers obtained and the actions that have to be implemented will be critical for the good environmental status of our marine ecosystems. BAMAR will be held for the first time in Barcelona, also in the framework of ISMS 2020.
