Scientists estimate that 640,000 tons of fishing gear end up lost in the seas and oceans every year.
Not being biodegradable, nets remain on the seabed for hundreds of years, causing great damage to the marine ecosystem. Non-profit initiative Healthy Seas – A Journey from Waste to Wear, in collaboration with Enaleia, the first professional fishing school in Greece, talk about the invisible yet significant issue of ghost nets, what it means for fishermen, and the solutions afforded by circular economy.
