Meet the volunteers removing deadly ghost nets from the ocean

The Team from Ghost Fishing NZ

About a month ago the team at Ghost Fishing HQ and Healthy Seas HQ let us know that National Geographic were coming to interview and video our team in action here in New Zealand. We were astonished!

We spent a few days filming with the Nat Geo team and recovered a 40-50 metre ghost net in some of the worst conditions Wellington had to offer.

The documentary of the mission and recovery has just gone live on Nat Geo.

We're so proud of the Ghost Fishing team and what we have achieved here in New Zealand out of sheer tenacity, teamwork and community.

Feel free to share and enjoy.
