Gap analysis on the application of the FAO’s voluntary guideline for marking of fishing gear in the OSPAR area
Reference number
OSPAR’s strategic marine litter objective is to “Prevent inputs of and significantly reduce marine litter, including microplastics, in the marine environment to reach levels that do not cause adverse impacts to the marine and coastal environment with the ultimate aim of eliminating inputs of litter”. The North-East Atlantic Environment Strategy (2010 – 2020) committed OSPAR to “develop appropriate programmes and measures to reduce amounts of litter in the marine environment and to stop litter entering the marine environment, both from sea-based and land-based sources” To fulfill this objective OSPAR 2014 agreed a Regional Action Plan (RAP) for Marine Litter for the period 2014-2021. In October 2021, OSPAR adopted a new environment strategy (NEAES 2030) which includes strategic and operational objectives addressing marine litter. To fulfill the objectives OSPAR is developing a new RAP-ML envisaged to be adopted in 2022. The new RAP ML includes the following action : Action B.4.1 Prevent, locate, retrieve and handle ALDFG This action focuses on ALDFG 2 as a significant source of marine litter pollution. The action will address prevention of ALDFG at sea, its location, verification and removal, as well handling the retrieved fishing gear in a sustainable way, building on existing experience, linked to EU processes such as implementation of SUP-D (and related EPR-systems/collecting targets for end-of-life gear etc.) and be consistent with other international provisions such as the IMO regulations. SwAM is partly responsible for this extensive action by starting the action with a gap analysis on the application of the FAO’s voluntary guideline for marking of fishing gear in the OSPAR area.
