Who we are...
Ghost Diving is the largest, and most experienced global diving organization working on the 'ghost fishing' topic with a track record in a significant variation of countries and international waters. 'Ghost fishing' is a common term that describes what happens when derelict fishing gear 'continues to fish', another term used is abandoned, lost, or otherwise discarded fishing gear (ALDFG).
Ghost Diving consists of exclusively volunteers carrying out innovative and challenging nature conservation projects independent or with the help of known and unknown fellow environmental organizations. Our efforts have brought the phenomenon of 'ghost fishing' to the attention of the public through key international collaborations, inspiring underwater photography, and unparalleled results.
The Ghost Diving concept has inspired many other and spread to 16 countries in the world where local diving teams now also identify as Ghost Diving chapters.
There is certainly no success without collaboration
While divers relish the opportunity to explore wrecks, marine life also have a taste for them but for a completely different reason: safety. But is a wreck really a safe place for them?
For the divers, volunteers and friends who were part of the Healthy Seas #SaveYourBreath event organized together with Cousteau Divers and Atlantis Diving, it was an unforgettable experience.
This non-profit driven by technical divers initiates and promotes lost fishing gear removal initiatives worldwide and shows the problem to a wide audience. We are experienced and specifically trained technical divers, who remove marine debris and make the problem called 'ghost fishing' visible to a worldwide audience. We are very interested in worldwide collaboration with other diving teams and like to start or participate in existing projects all over the world.
