Every year, more than 8 million tonnes of plastic go into the Ocean causing negative impacts upon marine animals, due to their intake or because they get stuck in the waste.

During this session will be presented the research which has been developed in the UP (University of Porto) concerning the impact of micro-plastics, as well as different projects to suppress the so-called “ghost nets”, the reuse of the plastic of the Ocean and people awareness of this problem.
