Abstract This report presents the results of a pilot to monitor marine litter on the sea-floor using regular bottom trawl fish surveys. In the last years registration of marine litter became common practice on some international bottom trawl fish surveys, however it was implemented differently on the participating international vessels. The pilot study gave special attention to the registration of litter caught during the Dutch IBTS Q1 in 2013. This meant that the catch was searched with more detail, the net on the deck was inspected and cleaned, descriptions of each item were given and photos were taken.
