Ghostnets

"
Each year around 640,000 tonnes of fishing gear is lost or thrown overboard by the fisheries around the world. These “ghostnets” drift through the oceans and can continue fishing for many years. They kill huge numbers of marine mammals, sea turtles and sea birds, and cause significant loss of biodiversity.

One study showed fur seal populations declined around 5% each year. Ghostfishing of commercially valuable fish species also reduces food resources.

Ghostnets are a global problem: they’re found even on remote atolls thousands of kilometres from commercial ports. But they are a particular problem in Australia’s Gulf of Carpentaria. Here ghostnets wash ashore at densities reaching up to three tonnes/km, among the highest in the world.....

Ghostfishing in the Gulf is known to kill sharks, crocodiles, and dugongs, as well as other fish and invertebrates. But it is turtles that are most at threat.

Australia is home to six of the world’s seven threatened species of marine turtle. During a recent cleanup of ghostnets on beaches in the Gulf, 80% of animals recorded in nets were marine turtles, including Olive Ridley, Hawksbill, Green and Flatback turtles. Getting tangled in ghostnets is one of the most common causes of death for marine turtles in Australia."
