Big algae accumulations with plastic debris on Šventoji beach

12 August 2022

This is how the northern part of Šventoji beach looked this week, where about 12 000 m2 of ​​algae accumulations and the plastic debris in them were brought up from the seabed. ESMIC team determined the size of the algae accumulation area using the Sentinel-2 satellite photos made on 2022-08-10.

 !! If you see a similar situation in other parts of the Lithuanian coast, please fill out this questionnaire:

This way, you will help #ESMIC project researchers to gather information about plastic pollution on the beach.

We sincerely thank Bronė Butkutė ​​for her active involvement in informing us about the situation at Šventoji beach.
