Ghost Fishing was set up to try to remove this lost equipment from the marine environment. It is a challenging and difficult task. Ghost gear is typically entangled in reefs and wrecks, and its removal can be complicated.
By reporting your sightings of ghost fishing gear, this will help document the problem and allow the legal removal and recycling of the gear by specially trained teams.
