Meeting with the mussel farmers

With the aim to prevent and mitigate mussel farming related waste in the Thermaikos Gulf, together with local associations and stakeholders we separately collected and recycled more than 20 tons of plastic mussel farming nets and ropes from Loudias estuary and Axios Delta.

Towards the active involvement of the local stakeholders, the recycling of more quantities of plastic mussel farming nets and the investigation of opportunities for reusing fishing equipment, we organise a meeting with the local stakeholders on the “Prevention and mitigation of fisheries related marine litter in the Thermaikos Gulf”.

The meeting will be held on Monday, October 23rd, 18.00-22.00, in the meeting room of the Municipal Council at the Chalastra Town Hall.
