For every Ghost Fishing survey book sold, £5.00 will be donated to Ghost Fishing UK!
‘Ghost Fishing’ is what fishing gear does when it has been lost, dumped or abandoned. Nets, long lines, fish traps or any man made contraptions designed to catch fish or marine organisms are considered capable of ghost fishing when unattended, and without anyone profiting from the catches, they are affecting already depleted commercial fish stocks. Caught fish die and in turn attract scavengers which will get caught in that same net, thus creating a vicious circle.
Nobody likes the thought of fish and other marine animals being caught in lost fishing gear. It’s wasteful, it’s cruel to the animals, and above all it can be prevented.
Ghost Fishing UK is a fantastic charity formed by scuba divers who work hard giving up their free time to remove debris from the ocean. Their work is greatly aided through the use of the reporting system on their website, so YOU can let them know where you've seen nets or traps that need to be removed. In order to make the reporting process easier we have created a waterproof survey book that you can keep in the pocket of your BCD and fill out when you're on your dives. The QR code on the back cover takes you straight to the reporting page on the website to log the data.
