Derelict fishing gear regularly washes ashore, but for those who stay above the surface it is very difficult to imagine what ‘ghost fishing’ really looks like under water, and what damage it can cause. As divers, we are regularly confronted with ghost fishing, but it remains largely unseen by others. Showing photos and videos of the problem, the actions and of course the results after cleaning up are essential, so not only divers but everyone can be aware of and be involved in this problem.
The pictures and video clips and on this website show (local) initiatives of divers. It not only gives a good impression of the problem but also what can be done in order to solve it. We are convinced that any initiative is valuable and a good inspiration to generate new initiatives. Do you have photo or video footage available? Please contact us and we will publish your footage on this website or our Facebook page.
