EMFF projects featured in EuroNews Oceans

Ocean magazine
Ocean magazine

Four EMFF projects have been featured in the last two episodes of the monthly Ocean video Magazine on EuroNews.

In April the magazine focused on how the European fishing industry can reduce its reliance on plastic. The episode covered the Oceanets and BIOGEARS projects, which are helping reduce the amount of marine litter in our seas and oceans by tackling the issue of what happens to old fishing and aquaculture gear.

In May, on the other hand, Ocean focused on the problem of unexploded ordnance which has accumulated on the seafloor for over a century. It also featured two projects supported by EMFF: the BASTA and ExPloTect projects. These are testing new methods and technologies allowing to locate and map unexploded munitions on the seafloor.
