16 Lots lobster pots recovered from the Carrick Roads - Falmouth

28th July 2020 - Following reports from local divers,, a team of volunteers set out on the Fathoms Free Rib 'Casper' to the area of the Carrick Roads known as East Narrows.

Whilst Nat and Emma remained on the boat, Jules and Luke quickly located two strings of lost pots and attached lifting bags to them. Once they had surfaced, the four volunteers dragged a total of 16 pots and hundreds of metres of rope into the RIB - the fullest it had ever been.

“The global marine debris problem is one of the greatest threats our planet has ever encountered. Divers are in a unique position to assist in tackling this threat. Industrial practices and legislation need to change, so our fight is a big one. We believe, by working together to raise awareness, that we are in a position to take on what appeared at first to be; the impossible”
