More ghost gear recovered from the Coroni River wreck in Falmouth Bay

Updated: Apr 11

Following a report last weekend of ghost gear on the Coroni River wreck in Falmouth bay, a team of volunteers took advantage of a weather window and early afternoon tide to go and recover it. With the wind blowing force 4 Westerly, sporadic showers and stormy weather forecast for the coming weekend, it was not quite the Caribbean but the divers were greeted with 5 metres of underwater visibility and Jules the skipper was treated to a nice rainbow and spared a drenching by the rain. No pots of gold were found but half a dumpy bag of ghost gear including net, rope, monofilament and even a tyre were cleared off of the popular dive site

“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”
