Saving The Environment. Fish Responsibly!

Each year, 640,000 tonnes of fishing gear are lost in the sea. This gear will be catching animals for years. 
Due to the increased use of plastic / nylon in fishing gear, these losses account for 10% of all marine plastic, and 70% of all macroplastics (> 20 cm) supplied to the sea per year.

The unintended consequences
Fishing gear that is lost or dumped in the ocean may account for almost one half of all the plastic waste that ends up there. We work to ensure more sustainable fishing.
