Coordinator: Andrew Couch

Andrew is a CCR and Technical Instructor Trainer and has been an active diver since 1990. Having been teaching recreational and technical diving for the past 20 years with numerous agencies including PADI, TDI and IANTD, Andrew has focused his attention on teaching with GUE. As one of the founders and owners of Third Dimension Diving South East Asia and through his involvement with GUE as an active Instructor and Instructor Trainer, Andrew has been able to develop the right tools and community to engage in meaningful project based diving.

Having regularly participated in underwater and beach clean up events, Andrew has led teams on several artificial reef building projects as well as conducting research and surveying of Hong Kong Government Artificial Reefs and Marine Eco Habitats.

Andrew and his team seek to develop and grow the Ghost Diving Hong Kong chapter in order to educate the local community and recover Ghost Nets from around the local Hong Kong waters. In addition the team hopes to work with other Ghost Diving Chapters and assist in increasing global awareness of the issues involved with Ghost Nets and other lost fishing equipment.
