Upcycling the Oceans Italy
Starts Up in Civitavecchia
Specifically, the ECOALF Foundation has the support of this port with the backing of CONAD Nort Ovest, who wants to show its commitment to the fishing sector and the conservation of the marine environment.
The short-term objective is to broaden the network of Italian ports involved, and expand the initiative to other regions. To achieve this, the Foundation team is already working with fishermen, who are the principal protagonists, and looking for the necessary partners to establish the project at a national scale.
16 boats and 60 fishermen involved.
The first step towards a great objective.
The recent approval of the Salvamare Law benefits the Italian fishermen that participate in programs that fight against marine debris, like UTO.
