At Tangle, we’re on target to prevent 7 tennis courts (1800 sqm) worth of fishing nets becoming ghost nets this year. By the end of 2023 we want to stop 526 tennis courts (137,800 sqm) worth of these fishing nets becoming ghost nets.
In the future, we want to create a real impact in all areas of the world by actively removing ghost net material from the oceans, recycling these into products, as well as educating communities about the ghost net problem and how they can help.
We’ve got big plans. The ghost net problem needs to be solved from all sides. We’ll continue to prevent ghost nets at source but we don’t want to stop there. We want to rid our oceans of these deadly nets - for good. To do that, we want to recruit ocean ambassadors, like yourself, who can help spread the word and educate others about the ghost net problem.
