The Fixed Line Transect Mediterranean monitoring Network (FLT Med Net) is a project coordinated by ISPRA since 2007. The project aim to coordinate monitoring in the Mediterranean sea region on marine mega and macro fauna (cetaceans, sea turtles, sea birds et al.) , maritime traffic and floating marine macro litter. Surveys are systematically conducted along ten fixed trans-boundary transects using passenger ferry as platform of observation. Two protocols are used for collecting consistent data on i) Mega and macro fauna and maritime traffic; ii) Floating Marine Macro Litter.
