Do not hesitate to ask us questions about the wastes you have found or to write us anything that seems useful for the Ocean Initiatives. Feel free, the best ideas never remain stowed in the drawers.Cette zone est vraiment caractérisée par les déchets liés à la pêche artisanale. Elle est située sur un lido entre plage et lagune (nous avons nettoyé le coté lagune) et est jonchée de filets et cordes abandonnés. Comme nous avons fait la récolte à marée haute et qu'une partie de la lagune ne nous était pas accessible, nous comptons refaire une IO à marée basse.
