Ghost nets are abandoned, lost, or otherwise discarded fishing nets that haunt our oceans, indiscriminately entangling and killing marine life long after their intended usage. These deadly remnants of the fishing industry are responsible for causing significant harm to marine ecosystems, posing a threat not just to fish but also to larger marine animals, including dolphins, turtles, and seals. The nets, often made from durable and non-degradable plastics, can continue their destructive path for decades, even centuries, in the marine environment. Up to 70% by weight of all macroplastic debris in the sea is estimated to be ghost fishing gear. An estimate by UNEP and FAO suggested, as early as 2009, that around 640,000 tons of ghost nets are added to our oceans each year. It is probable that today this number is even higher.
