The lost and found department... at sea!
-Talk and exhibition-
It is a pleasure for us to present the results of three projects related with lost fishing gear and its consequences on the fisheries:
-Hunting ghost nets has helped to find lost fishing gear (sponsored by LUSH)
-Ghost nets out! allowed for the removal of a lost net 100m long at 40m deep. This action was possible thanks to the collaboration of the SCUBA unit of the Catalonian police of the Mossos d'Esquadra, the Catalonian Agriculture Livestock and Fisheries Administration (DARP), the Association of Fishermen of Blanes and the sponsoring of CUP Blanes through their campaign "Diners al Carrer" (Money in the street that sponsors projects of local NGO's)
-Mapping of abandoned fishing gear at South Costa Brava, photos gathered almost every weekend during the past six years have been analysed to offer managing tools. This activity has been possible with the support of Libera Naturaleza Sin Basura (Libera Trash-free Nature)
And thanks to Biblioteca Comarcal de Blanes (the local library) we are happy to present:
-EXHIBITION: 3 to 21 September
-TALK: 13 September at 19:30
Looking forward to meeting you!
