It is estimated that each year,
tons of fishing gear
are lost or abandoned in the seas and oceans.
of marine animals
are injured and killed by ghost nets.
We clean the seas to save marine life
and at the same time give our partners the chance to contribute to ocean protection. The fishing nets we
collect will be regenerated into brand-new nylon and brand-new products.
Actions against waste fishing nets:
4 Regions = 1 Goal
Our activities bring us to areas important for biodiversity and tourism, seas that are heavily fished and at the same time hold
shipwrecks and other objects where waste fishing nets tend to accumulate.
We currently work in the following regions, with over 200 volunteer divers and 950 fishermen and fish farmers.
Our Results Make A Sea Difference
Since our founding in 2013, Healthy Seas has collected 585 tons of waste nets and ensured
they become a valuable resource instead of ending up in a landfill or in the natural environment.
In this way, we have
prevented thousands of sea animals and birds from becoming trapped
made possible that waste nets become a valuable resource.
Together we can make
a positive impact for the planet!
