Ghost Fishing

Summarized by Plex Health
Last Updated: 10 May 2022

Run-down fishing gear, occasionally referred to as "ghost equipment," is any disposed of, lost, or deserted, fishing equipment in the aquatic environment. With the Fishing for Energy partnership, NOAA, National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, Covanta Energy Corporation, and Schnitzer Steel Industries, Inc. a cost-free option is supplied to anglers to take care of old, pointless or abandoned fishing equipment and to decrease the quantity of derelict fishing equipment around coastal rivers. The NOAA Marine Debris Program is functioning with fishermen to provide a place to take care of fishing gear absolutely free and support new, innovative avoidance strategies with technical improvements in fishing equipment.
