Fathoms Free ghost net recovery featured on BB2

Updated: Dec 7, 2020

In early September 2020 Fathoms Free volunteers were filmed for the BBC 2 two-part series 'Cornwall with Simon Reeve' recovering a 200m long monofilament net from a reef near Falmouth, Cornwall.

Simon interviewed Natalllia about the activities of Fathoms Free, helped pull the long net onto the boat, removed trapped wildlife from the net and helped bag it up for recycling.

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”
