It is estimated that each year,

640,000

tons of fishing gear

are lost or abandoned in the seas and oceans.

Millions

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:

Cleanups

Volunteer divers recover ghost nets from reefs
and shipwrecks, hotspots for marine biodiversity.

Prevention

Collaboration with fishermen, fish farms, local
communities and other stakeholders to
prevent waste nets from ending up in the sea.
Together we work on measures to dispose the
nets in responsible yet affordable ways.

Education

Raising public awareness about the
environmental damage caused by ghost fishing
gear and promoting the ecological and
economic importance of healthy seas.

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 170 volunteer divers and 620 fishermen and fish farmers.

Our Results Make A Sea Difference

Since our founding in 2013, Healthy Seas has collected 510 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
and
made possible that waste nets become a valuable resource.

Together we can make
a positive impact for the planet!
