Who we are

OLPA (Osservatorio Ligure Pesca Ambiente) is a cooperative consortium of marine scientists, science comunicators, scuba operators and environmental technicians. 

OLPA has been collaborating continuously since 1996 with some Public Institution (Regione Liguria and ARPA Liguria – Regional Agency for Protection of Liguria Environment) in the fields of protection, enhancement and management of the environment and its resources.

Since 2015 OLPA collaborates with Costa Crociere Foundation with a three years’ project named “Rotta Verso un Mare più Blu” (“En route to a bluer sea”), which has the purpose of raise awareness about marine litter. It comprises monitoring actions and environmental educations activities.
