OSPAR organizes the work session "Handling (Plastic) garbage in the Fishing Sector”. This work session will focus on the practical experiences with preventing new garbage from the fishing sector to end up in the oceans, especially concerning the handling of plastic domestic waste and discarded fishing gear on board of fishing vessels and in fishing harbours. By discussing the practices with participants from the fishing sector, waste companies, harbours and other organisations new ways for better waste management and prevention will be explored.
