Marine Debris Surveys

The marine debris protocol is available for viewing or download below.

Also available are two Marine Debris Field Data sheets which can be photcopied onto underwater polyester paper to facilitate data collection in the field. The first template has no common prefillled debris items on the data table; the second, has a number of common debris items. Volunteers can choose for themselves which one to download.

If you intend to use the Marine Debris Protocol to collect observations on marine debris in your local area then you will need to request a Excel Debris Data Entry Template. Currently the template cannot be downloaded from this website. Please email to request a template. Instructuctions on how to complete data entry can be found in the first worksheet in the workbook.
