THANK YOU! 🐳🐳 Thirty volunteers joined us today and collected FORTY KG of litter from the beach - most of it fishing net and a whole load of wet wipes and miscellaneous plastics.

Evey year, 640,000 tons of additional ghost nets intrude our oceans. They lose their purpose but not their function and haunt the oceans for centuries to come. It takes 600-800 years until the nets decompose into dangerous microplastics polluting oceans and contaminating marine life.

46 % of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch consists of lost or discarded fishing nets, so-called "ghost-nets". Together with our partners @healthyseas and @ghostfishing we make an impact.

The oceans are drowning in a flood of plastic waste. It's time to end this! About 170 @ghostfishing divers worldwide recover the nets on a voluntary basis over the weekends. 🌊💪🏼

Ghost gear like this continuously fishes killing fish for no purpose. It feels good to get off the beaches and out of the ocean.

Keeping our seas clean and safe for the marine life and humans alike. This is the latest discarded fishing net we recover during a dive. The led will be recycled into diving weights, which will be given for free to our friends and students. The rope will be used in our future recoveries. The nylon will be kept for recycling at a later date. #ghostnetsawareness #ghostnet #ghostgear #recycle #recycling #led #weights #cleansafeseas

Last weekend, the newest #volunteer diving team working with us in the #Adriatic, recovered about 150 meters of long lines and 100 kgs of gill nets from #Krnica in #Croatia, thus preventing this old #fishing gear from being a #threat to #marinelife any longer!🌊🙏🐬

Why Fishing Net Gains Nigeria (F-NGN) ? (F-NGN) is a 3-year project, designed in line with the Global Ghost Gear Initiative (GGGI) goals of identifying and tackling the issues of ghost gear and other related threats to marine life in Nigeria and the West Coast of Africa. 'Ghost gear' is any fishing gear that is abandoned, lost or discarded in marine environments. This includes fishing nets, long lines, fish traps, lobster pots or any other human-made device used to catch marine animals.

There are many ways in which this fishing gears can be lost in the sea:

1. Environmental: storms, wave action or currents, sedimentation, ice cover, deep-water conditions. 
2. Gear conflict: entanglement with other vessels or bottom topography such as
reefs or rocky bottoms.
3. Gear condition: breaks loose/cut loose (intent can be accidental or deliberate) due to old age/overuse. 
4. Inappropriate disposal at sea. 
The SeaDoc Society, for example, has estimated just one abandoned net could kill almost $20,000 (£13,000) worth of Dungeness crab over 10 years while the Virginia Institute of Marine Science has estimated abandoned or lost crab pots in the Chesapeake Bay area capture 1.25m blue crabs annually. 
That being said, In line with the Global Ghost Gear Initiative [GGGI], the aim of this project is to : 
1. Raise awareness in the public on the impacts of Abandoned, Lost, or otherwise Discarded Fishing Gears (ALDFGs).
2. Improve the livelihood of host communities through craft innovations using recovered ghost gears. 
3. Promote community integration and participation in the F-NGN project through the F-Hubnet program. (The F-Hubnet will include the construction of the Hubnet as a core aspect of F-NGN within the fishing communities. It will serve as the collection point for recovered gears, data collection centre, reporting centre and complaint centre.)
4. Proffer sustainable recycling solutions through creative craft contest and replicating solutions. etc.. GHOST FISHING is threatening our oceans. And together we can tackle it  #Fishing #FishNets #GGGI #OceanLife #GhostFishing #GhostGear #Fishers #NGO #SoferInitiative

อวนจับปลาที่ถูกทิ้งเหล่านี้มีมาถึง 46% ของขยะพลาสติกทั้งหมดในทะเล ถ้าเราปล่อยให้อวนเหล่านี้หลุดลอยไป มันจะกลายเป็นกับดักที่คร่าชีวิตสัตว์ทะเล เราจึงรวบรวมอวนจับปลาเหล่านี้ มาผลิตเป็นกระเป๋ารุ่น RETRIEVE 
รายละเอียดเพิ่มเติมที่ www.facebook.com/matarcher.th และ www.matarcher.com

Discarded and abandoned fishing nets keep on killing long after the useful life of the net is over. But this material is reusable if collected and recycled.

◦ ◦NEW in the BLOG: What’s worse? A plastic straw or a fishing net?◦ ◦
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Click that saucy little link in my bio for today’s blog post where I explore the actions being taken to reduce plastic waste in the ocean, and the crucial realities society still must face. I explain what ‘ghost gear’ is, and the tragic ways it is killing beloved marine life. I break down the harsh facts and help to explain why it feels like all our good intentions and actions don’t seem to be helping the rapidly declining well being of the oceans. Turtles don’t only fall victim to plastic straws, educate yourself on why and what you can do at the Living Graycefully Blog 🐳🐳🐳Thanks for reading 💛 ◦ ◦ ◦

Palm oil berg. For perspective, think around the size of a third of an old school boiler tank. Incredibly heavy, lucky I had a bear in my pocket to problem solve. Saved from the incoming tide and now up by the bin. Thanks @patrickofsussex for the heads up, and to whoever posted about it on Facebook or wherever. #2minutebeachclean#plasticproject#plasticpollution#ghostnet#ghostgear#fishingline#marineconservation#marineplastics#beachclean#litterpick#handmade#beachcombing#litterati#take3forthesea#justgrabbits#cleanoceans#surfersagainstsewage#repurpose#reuse#recycle#beachcleaners#wethechange#surf#weaversofinstagram#packyourtrash#palmoil#palmberg

🏴‍☠️🐬Did you know ghost nets are not only floating death traps but they also damage reefs by introducing parasites and invasive species to their environment? 🐋🏴‍☠️ This #ChooseDay choose to turn this trash into treasure with our range of recycled rash guards made from retrieved fishing gear. From recovering illegal poachers nets during Operation Milagro to retrieving ghost nets during Sea Shepherd's ghostnet campaign in the UK, with your help we can remove more of these deadly nets from the ocean and turn them into products that will save lives and no longer harm them! 
Get your own rash guard now at bit.ly/JRRashguards did we mention they come in 3 amazing colors!
