Hello Coral-List,

For those of you interested in marine debris and its environmental impacts, including on coral ecosystems, there is a new online forum for news and discussion on the subject: MarineDebris.Info.

MarineDebris.Info is an e-mail listserv on research, management, and prevention of marine debris. Subscriptions are free. To join, go to:


The MarineDebris.Info forum is provided by Marine Affairs Research and Education (MARE) in association with the University of Washington. MARE serves coastal and marine resource managers worldwide with programs to help them share best practices with peers (marineaffairs.org). Other MARE programs include MPA News and the Marine Ecosystems and Management newsletter.

MarineDebris.Info operates as a normal listserv with subscribers posting questions or comments via e-mail (similar to Coral-List). An associated webinar series will be launched soon.

Subjects for discussion on the listserv include:
• Breaking news on marine debris-related incidents or initiatives
• Scientific advances
• Response and removal
• Research and monitoring
• Prevention
• Engagement of particular stakeholder groups in problem-solving
• Outreach and education
• International, regional, and cross-sectoral partnerships
• Economic instruments
• Governance and policymaking
• New and historical data availability
• Marine debris modeling topics
• Technology and innovation
• Announcements of new marine debris-related publications, courses, or expeditions
• Controversial topics in marine debris management

Please help spread the word to interested colleagues and contacts. Thanks very much.

Kind regards,
