The project began in September 2015 thanks to the support of the HAP Foundation. During this initial phase of the project, 9 fishing ports from the provinces of Castellón and Alicante decided to collaborate and they managed to remove more than 60 tonnes of trash. In June 2016, Ecoembes joined the project and thanks to their involvement, the project extended to the provinces of Girona, Barcelona, Tarragona and Valencia. To date, we’ve managed to involve 28 ports, 14 of which are from the Community of Valencia, 14 from Catalonia, amounting to a total of 441 sea trawlers.
