JEALSA COLLABORATES WITH THE GLOBAL GHOST GEAR INITIATIVE FOR THE ELIMINATION OF ABANDONED FISHING GEAR IN THE OCEANS.
At least 640,000 tonnes of fishing gear are abandoned in our oceans every year.
Lost, abandoned or discarded fishing gear have become a big problem for our seas, which already account for 10% of the plastic in our oceans. These plastics can remain for up to 600 years in the marine ecosystem, capturing and killing animals throughout their existence.
Apart from sponsoring the GGGI, Jealsa has implemented in the entire fleet, this NGO’s Guide of Good Practices.
