Healthy Seas was an Exhibitor at Duikvaker Expo last weekend (4-5 February) at Expo Houten. The biggest diving event of the Netherlands had its 25th anniversary this year. The event attracted ca. 15.000 visitors, 100+ exhibitors and 80 speakers from all over Europe.

Together with our partner Ghost Fishing, we were spreading the word about ghost nets and the solution we offer. It was great to have so much interest from the public and potential new partners, while also having the younger generation around, children who are getting ready for sea clean ups…! We had a great weekend at Expo, thank you everyone involved!

See you next year!
