Abstract [en]

The Environment Agency of Iceland hosted a conferencé on plastics in the marine environment in Reykjavík, Iceland on the 24th of September 2014. The conference aimed to give an overview of existing knowledge on the issue and to identify reasonable and effective measures to minimize plastic waste in the marine environment. Plastics can have direct impact on animals, both through entanglement and ingestion, which will alter the biological and ecological performance of individuals. It also affects biota.

It is clear from the discussion that the lack of action cannot be blamed on lack of information or lack of available tools. Discussion points from the parallel sessions included “no more talking – time for action”. The problem lies in the way plastics are consumed and the way consumers relate to plastics as the material has become less durable and seemingly less valuable.
