One ghost net less, at last!

Today we are very happy to report that the ghost net found last October has finally been removed!!!!
The operation has been organised by the Catalonian Fisheries Administration (Direcció General de Pesca i Afers Marítims) in collaboration with the University of Barcelona, the Underwater Unit of the Catalan Police (Mossos d'Esquadra) and the Fishermen's Guild of Blanes. And in the middle of all this was our little boat, MARU!!! Here you have some photographs to appreciate the difficulty of the action:
