Remove ‘Ghost Fishing’ Nets that Threaten Marine Life

Remove ‘Ghost Fishing’ Nets that Threaten Marine Life | Seahorse Project | Scoop.it
Countless nets exist under oceans after being abandoned or lost by fishermen. These nets pose a threat to marine life because they trap these animals making them unable to break through the mesh.
Gaye Rosier's insight:

Kenna Eco Diving marine conservation volunteers found one during a cleanup dive. Luckily there were no species trapped in it and we were able to remove it from the ocean.
