Ghostfishing expedition at Salamina

A ghostfishing expedition was carried out on Sunday 2 June 2 2019, for a sea clean-up at the island of Salamina, in Attica. Together with our partners from Aegean Rebreath and of course “Ama, the ghost net hunter”, our ROV, we dived in a reef where a significant quantity of abandoned nets was detected. After a hard effort, we managed to lift-up the fishing net, weighing more than 700 kilos! Our mission, therefore, was crowned with success and one more net awaits its turn to be recycled and returned to the production process.
