In week 23 employees from Bakkafrost, Hiddenfjord and Marine Harvest Føroyar are going to clean the farming fjords in the Faroe Islands, reports Bakkafrost.com.
Bakkafrost states that “a lot of PVC and other garbage is entering the fjords and the aquacultural farming industry is determined to collect and correctly dispose of this material.”
“The first cleanup days were arranged last year in June and it’s intended to be a recurrent event each year,” adds Bakkafrost.
Bakkafrost concludes: “Hopefully, this yearly cleanup event will help creating an awareness among the Faroese population on the importance of a clean environment.
