What’s the Problem with abandoned fishing nets?

Fishers are fishing to close to reefs where there are branching Corals and their Nets will get entangled in. they are not able to bring them back in the boat and will cut the nets off on the surface abandoning them.

It kills Marine Life long after it was abandoned!

Post entanglement can kill marine life over the next 20 years or longer after the fishing net was abandoned.

Further Problems

Because it’s easier and cheaper to cut a stuck fishing net off on the surface then to dive down and cut it out of the entangled Corals. It will be there until we find it.

Removing the Nets from the reef which is long and hard work but essential.
Educating Fishers.
And in the future mark fishing nets with an owners tag.
