Ekipa Ghost-gear dobi podporo RIB

archive – Diving NewsGhost-gear crew get RIB support

Volunteer divers with the Fathoms Free group are set to remove ‘ghost-gear’ in the form of a large fishing-net from the sea near St Michael’s Mount in Cornwall on Saturday (8 April).

Njihovi potopi bodo prvi z novega RIB, ki ga je financirala globalna dobrodelna organizacija World Animal Protection, da bi pomagala zaščitnikom morja doseči sicer nedostopna območja.

Prej je bila skupina omejena na potapljanje z obale, čeprav so tudi brez čolna v zadnjih dveh letih izvlekli približno 8.5 ton odpadkov.

Potop iz pristanišča Penzance je prvi v nizu 12 potopov, izvedenih iz novega RIB.

World Animal Protection says that 640,000 tonnes of ghost-gear – more than the weight of the Titanic – pollutes the oceans every year.

Both seals and whales have been reported recently as caught in lost or discarded fishing-gear in Cornwall, says the charity, adding that seabirds, porpoises and turtles such as the critically endangered leatherback frequently become entangled or caught, causing infections, constrictions and sometimes death.

Fathoms Free recycles the ghost-gear it recovers, whether in the form of artworks or as kayaks, bodyboards and other ocean-related products.

Led by founder Rob Thompson, the divers will have a support-boat alongside the RIB at St Michael’s Mount, and say that an alternative dive-site has been set up if the weather is poor.
