Study of Marine Litter
#1
From Radio Sintonia:

The Observatory for the study of marine litter of Fuerteventura begins its journey today with the aim of becoming a scientific benchmark in the field of Macaronesia in the study of the impacts and monitoring of marine litter on the coasts, the seabed and the surrounding waters of the islands.
The project is part of the strategy of the Ministry of Environment, Climate Change, Circular Economy and R & D + i of the Island Council for the reduction of marine litter, and has the collaboration of the Biodiversity Foundation of the Ministry for Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge, through the Pleamar Program, co-financed by the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (FEMP).
The counselor Marlene Figueroa has pointed out that this laboratory was born with the vocation of becoming a research center “because it is not enough to collect the garbage, it is necessary to analyze it, monitor it, and obtain information on flows to fight effectively against pollution in general and in a very particular way against marine pollution, which affects the islands in a very special way "
The Marine Garbage Observatory will allow the application of the technical scientific method to analyze the types of garbage and waste that reach the coasts, from a micro and macro perspective, generate knowledge, awareness and citizen participation on this serious problem and define effective strategies fight against pollution.
To this end, the project management has established collaboration channels with specialists from Canary Islands Universities, voluntary associations, Fishermen's Guilds, underwater fishing associations, and groups of marine sports fans, as well as waste managers and recycling experts. , with the aim of creating a stable multidisciplinary work group that faces the challenge of "de-embasurization".

De-trashing/decluttering? Just my guess, definitely not an expert.
