31 tonnes of waste are dumped daily in the Mediterranean Sea and 95% of these are plastics. Italy is the third Country to pollute more this area. Fishermen who have brought ashore plastic waste caught in their nets until today have risked severe penalties and of being accused of illegal waste trafficking. The Italian Parliament will approve very soon the new law SAVE THE SEA, so all fishermen will be able bringing legally ashore and recycling all waste collected. The project FISHING FOR PLASTIC realized by SBT navy has collected from the Adriatic Sea more than 24 tonnes of waste in 7 months.
