Wish I was a diver and could do something this impactful! #savetheturtles #savethereef #seashepherd Posted @withrepost • @seashepherdadelaide Sea Shepherd and Scuba Diving International Launches the Worlds First Ghostnet Recovery Specialty Diver Course While single use plastics are a major issue, something we can all focus, so to are ghostnets. In the North Pacific it is estimated fishing nets dumped or lost at sea make up 45% of the plastic in the ocean. Over 700,000 tonnes of plastic from fishing nets finds its way into the ocean each year. Sea Shepherd UK's Operation Ghostnet has been focusing on this issue in the Atlantic Ocean where thousands of fishing nets have been dumped over the years, many by illegal fishing operations. REPOST Sea Shepherd UK Sea Shepherd and Scuba Diving International Launches the Worlds First Ghostnet Recovery Specialty Diver Course The Sea Shepherd UK Ghostnet campaign has been incredibly successful in recovering large amounts of Ghostnets and gear as well as engaging in outreach and education on the issue. More and more divers want to get involved in the project - but there are significant risks in lifting Ghostnets and it is essential that proper training is provided before anyone attempts to lift a net or other lost/discarded fishing gear. Sea Shepherd teaming up with Scuba Diving International, allows specially trained instructors to provide a recognized training program which covers all of the surveying, lifting techniques and safety considerations required to perform this activity.

"It's toxic to us 😩😩😩 ⁠Plastic bags and toilet seats. Hundreds of discarded fishing nets. All of this was stuck to the seabed of Greece’s Andros island.⁣⁠ ⁣⁠ Volunteers collected over 660 lbs of plastic waste. But some say the microplastics leave an invisible imprint on the environment and even ourselves. They can be consumed by fish that then become a part of our diet." . repost from @ajplus
