Our mission


Every year between 500,000 and 1 million tonnes of fishing gear is lost at sea – resulting in toxic plastic pollution and 338.000 tons of fish and shellfish killed from ghost fishing (1)
We have limited knowledge about how the world’s oceans – their temperature, chemistry, currents and life – drive global systems that make the Earth habitable for humankind.

« Resqunit will set out to not only protect our bottom-line by saving gear and stock, it will also serve to protect the very source that provides for us – a responsibility we take seriously. »
