Save our ocean –
one ghost net at a time
Our mission to raise awareness of how to safely locate and recover Ghost Nets around the world. Divers Against Ghost Nets is a non profit, non political organisation that focus on how to safely locate and recover Ghost Nets.
By sharing we show we are caring!
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.
Stay tuned for more news shortly!

Send a SMS to 0708-344 264 with GPS coordinates, type of gear, markings on the gear, depth, how & when it was lost add your name if you want to get contacted for further information. We will plot it into our maps and plan dives when weather, currents, visibility and diver availability allows. We have trained divers that covers Carlskrona to Strömstad.

We need more experienced divers, if you are certified and comfortable in cold dark waters with limited visibility, has logged minimum 100 dives in Scandinavian conditions, and own a basic technical dive gear.
