Global Ghost Gear Initiative

January 5, 2015

Nofir attended the initial round table meeting of the Global Ghost Gear Initiative organized by World Animal Protection in Ljubljana this November. For the first time business, UN agencies, Government, scientists and civil society gathered to form a strategy on how to stop thousands of tones of fishing gear from being lost or abandoned at sea, killing millions of marine animals each year.
