More than 100 million pounds of plastic from industrial fishing gear pollute the oceans each year. Discarded fishing nets, ropes, crates, and baskets, have become a serious danger, often choking, suffocating, or entangling trapped sea life. Lost fishing nets, also referred to as “ghost nets,” remain undetected in the ocean repeatedly killing countless amounts of marine animals.

- Sail through the Great Pacific Garbage pass and collect as much fishing waste as you can. Be careful not to interact with any wildlife or disrupt any habitats!
