Falmouth Ghost Gear dive

Updated: Aug 8, 2019

20/21st July 19 - A Huge Thanks to Mark and ‘Stingray’ at #atlanticscuba for an excellent weekends diving in Falmouth Bay. 😀

Our divers were able cut through and release several pieces of lost fishing net (trawl and gill net) and rope, snagged on a local wreck. Lift bags sent it to the surface for the crew to retrieve. Amazing effort by the divers and a little less ghost gear and marine debris in our Cornish seas.

Thanks to support from World Animal Protection UK #Morrisons Ocean Recovery Project.

We are a group of volunteer Marine Conservationists who refuse to stand by, whilst our seas turn into uninhabitable dumping grounds​.

“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”
