Progress towards preventing marine plastic litter
Australia chaired the working group established at PPR to progress:
- ways to regulate the transportation of plastic pellets by ships
- what lost and/or discharged fishing gear should be reported so that we can begin to understand the scope of these discharges as a contributor to the global issue of marine plastic litter.
As Australia’s representative at the IMO, AMSA will continue to work hard through the IMO and in Australia to develop international and domestic measures to address the global issue of marine plastic litter.
