The objective of the LIFE LEMA project was to define a management service for local authorities for tackling the problem of floating marine litter (FML) before it arrives at shore areas with difficult access, or it sinks. The service, to be initially implemented in two transnational regions in the south-east of the Bay of Biscay (Gipuzkoa and Pyrnes-Atlantiques) would include tools and management plans. The replicability of the service would be assessed for the areas of Marseille and Bilbao. Most previous initiatives on FML have focused on defining amounts, source and composition, but LIFE LEMA aimed to going a step further by proposing an integrated protocol.
