Our future should not be caught in fishing nets!

Ghost nets in the sea pose a major threat to marine life. Many species, especially sea turtles, get injured or even die by getting caught in ghost nets.

In collaboration with fisheries cooperatives and diving centers, as part of the #LifeMedturtles project, PSCA-DEKAMER is identifying ghost nets and working to collect them.
Our project partner will start to put ‘#GhostNet Collection Boxes’ on different areas of Aegean and Mediterranean coasts of Turkey to protect the marine ecosystem.
