Ghost net diving

Safety

Get them up, safely,

Almost every dive you do, you can find small and large ghost nets and other environmentally damaging things in the sea. This community page is dedicated to the recreational diver who wants to make a difference while diving, without ruining the dive experience or getting into difficult situations underwater.Knowledge is key to safe diving and recovering ghost nets has many hidden dangers to the unaware divers. In this community we will try to describe the risks and some different techniques for safely recover things from the bottom. Always remember to dive within your training levels, a ghost net is not worth a human life…

Cooperations against ghost nets

We need information from fishermen where they lost their fishing gear. This is the most important piece of information to be able to plan and execute a recovery dive. We are currently beta testing a new mobile app togheter with Havs & Vattenmyndigheten to improve the coordination of the loss and recovery reports.
