The Scottish Government has launched a consultation on the update of the Marine Litter Strategy for Scotland. This consultation proposes new priority actions to tackle marine litter in Scotland, building on the work already conducted through the original strategy.
The main purpose of the strategy is to develop current and future measure to prevent litter from entering the maritime and coastal environment and to support litter removal, in order to bring ecological, economic and social benefits.
The consultation paper is available on the Scottish Government website, and participants can fill in the online form to give their views. The consultation closes on 22 March 2022.
