Healthy Seas Web lab: Ghost Gear From Retrieval to Root Cause
At its core, the relationship between divers and fishermen is key when it comes to the global fight against ghost gear. Without communication and collaboration, the dump and retrieval cycle is bottomless.
Two figures who are behind forging those connections, building trust between the two communities, and innovating new approaches to lost and damaged gear are Lefteris Arapakis, a young UN champion of the Earth and founder of Enaleia, and Pascal van Erp, a leading environmental diver and founder of Ghost Diving.
In this Healthy Seas Web Lab presented by Gelareh Darabi, we tackle the ghost gear crisis and connect with members of the fishing community about their battles to make sure the oceans are protected from this waste.
