Dataset identification

Title of datasetMarine Litter in the Croatian Coastal Waters – Sea-floor Litter (Bottom trawling)
Narrative summary of datasetThe dataset was collected and created through DeFishGear project from 2013 to 2017. The current dataset contains data on litter collected during bottom trawling on the Croatian waters and is mostly consisted of macroplastics and other materials. The data are described using specific vocabulary, created for the purposes of the project.
Summary of processing methodologySurveys performed followed the “Methodology for Monitoring Marine Litter on the Seafloor (continental shelf) – bottom trawl surveys” that were prepared within the framework of the marine litter monitoring approach based on the EU MSFD TG10 “Guidance on Monitoring of Marine Litter in European Seas (2013)”, the NOOA “Marine Debris Monitoring and Assessment: Recommendations for Monitoring Debris Trends in the Marine Environment (2013) and the “MEDITS International bottom trawl survey in the Mediterranean, Instructional Manual”, taking into consideration the draft “UNEP/MAP MEDPOL Monitoring Guidance Document on Ecological Objective 10: Marine Litter (2014)”.
