Recycling Ghost Nets
Ghost nets are an unpleasant reality in the Mediterranean. Divers often come across nets left behind by fishermen that degrade and blot our depths in various ways.
I was always annoyed until I decided to take action.
Nowadays in my excursions when I spot a ghost net, and if I'm able to, I dedicate some time picking it up.
When on land, I separate the different materials.
The plastic parts are sent to the recycling bins, while lead is re-purposed in a new usable form for our dives.
