Durable for 600 years

Some ghost gear is made of very durable plastic and can last in our seas for up to 600 years.

Entangled animals

Entangled animals can drown in minutes or endure long, slow deaths lasting months or years.

Trapped!

You are too entangled in ghost gear to go any further! Every year, thousands of marine animals get
caught in lost or discarded fishing gear.
