AbstractOne of the requirements of the OSPAR Convention is to assess the quality of the marine environment and each of its compartments (i.e. water, sediments and biota), as well as anthropogenic inputs which may affect the quality of the marine environment. In order to fulfil this commitment for marine litter OSPAR has developed three indicators on beach litter, seabed litter and plastic particles in fulmars’ stomachs.
