UTO Spain

Upcycling the Oceans Spain was born in September 2015, with our Ecoalf Foundation, as a project with the participation of 9 fishing ports. A year later, ECOEMBES joined the project to expand it around the entire Spanish coastline as well as guaranteeing a proper management of the recovered marine debris. As of today, the involvement of over 3,000 fishermen in 40 different ports has been achieved.  

More than 550 fishing vessels involved
