Lost & Abandoned Fishing gear

Ghost gear refers to any fishing gear that has been abandoned, lost or otherwise discarded, and is the most harmful form of marine debris.

There are many reasons why fishing gear can be lost or abandoned, including severe weather, snags beneath the surface, conflict with other gear, interaction with other vessels and, rarely, intentional discard when no other options are available.

 
 
 
 

A Global Effort

The Global Ghost Gear Initiative (GGGI) is a cross stakeholder alliance of fishing industry, private sector, corporates, NGOs, academia and governments focused on solving the problem of lost and abandoned fishing gear worldwide.

We believe the solution to this problem lies in working together across all sectors to achieve maximum impact for our oceans and the life within them.
