The principle purpose of this report is to provide recommendations, advice and practical guidance, for establishing programmes to monitor and assess the distribution and abundance of plastic litter, also referred to as plastic debris, in the ocean. It is a product of the GESAMP Working Group (WG40) on «Sources, fate and effects of plastics and microplastics in the marine environment», coled by the Intergovernmental Commission on Oceanography (IOC-UNESCO) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). The report was prepared by 19 independent experts from 14 countries, with financial support from a number of agencies and national governments (Annex I). The term ‘plastic litter’ is used throughout, but is synonymous with «plastic debris». In some cases the report refers to monitoring strategies and sampling protocols that have been designed for the monitoring of all forms of marine litter (i.e. processed wood, metal, textiles, glass, munitions, and plastics).
This document is intended to inform the establishment of national and regional field monitoring programmes. It provides links to protocols and data recording sheets that are intended be used in the field. The scope is restricted to monitoring plastic litter in the marine environment. However, many of the techniques described can be used in freshwater environments, specifically for monitoring rivers and lakes, with appropriate modification.
