Tackling the Ghost Nets !!

About 100,000 whales, turtles, dolphins and seals get caught by these ghost nets every year and some of them lost their lives just because they were not able to push themselves out of those nets. The ghost nets are becoming a killer machine for marine life, these nets are responsible for more than 20% of the destruction of coral reefs.

As per the radioactive dating and other evidence, our earth is 4.5 Billion years old. It was all good until the human species came under existence and started to build for their sustainability. The ecosystem was affected, the food chain had been disturbed and the overall quality of life was started to decrease. One of the most affected areas of human species is marine life. About 8 million tons of waste is dumped into the ocean, every year out of which 600,000 to 800,000 tonnes are of fishing nets and other fishing equipment. This waste reaches the sea beds and start to destroy marine life.

Necessity is the mother of all the invention, this quote suits all of the entrepreneurs. To fight with these ghosts nets and to save the loss of marine life due to these nets, a company in Pune, India came out, DSM engineering. They are contracting fishermen for collecting the abandoned nets in the sea, fishermen are also happy as it will be providing many benefits to them also, like their reach increasing in the sea because of the removal of nets, they are also paid for this work and also, there are fewer chances that an abandoned net gets stuck into the boat propeller.

The company collects all the abandoned nets from the fishermen and recycle them and further dividing them into granules and making useful products which are used for various purposes like an eco-friendly surfboard. The company is getting raw material from the sea which helps in cleaning the ocean. Not only in India, but all around the world, many organizations are working to reduce the ghost nets from the ocean.

A good net project was started back in 2019 to raise awareness about the effect that is created by ghost nets. The ghost nets are converted into the volleyball nets and used for beach volleyball matches around the world starting from Brazil’s Copacabana Beach. To highlight the damage done by the nets, these nets are painted with different marine life artworks. The project was a major success and it is supported by various organizations like Green Peace, World Animal Protection and Healthy Seas initiative.

One of the UK’s companies Fourth Element is using Nylon from these ghost nets and utilizing them in making wetsuits, rash vests, and swimsuits. The company also works with different organizations like Global Ghost Gear Initiative and Reef World for enhancing marine life. In Pakistan, Olive Ridley Project (ORP), a turtle rescue charity is working with a textile researcher Seher Mirza to work on the different projects that can be done with the abandoned nets.

The organizations working to re-establish the natural life of marines needs our support. Prevention is better than cure. They are curing the marine life, but if we start to protect nature than there will no need to curing nature as nature can heal itself, as we see this during the nationwide lockdown. In the last just a single line for all of us, “It can be done alone but a little support is much better”.
