Healthy Seas in 2015: many more nets and partners!

2015 results2_A4
16 February 2016

Last year’s results are published and they look very encouraging! We created many new and valuable partnerships, which helped us collecting much higher numbers of nets, raising more awareness and bringing a larger range of recycled products to the market.

A huge thank you to all of our partners and supporters who made this possible! Those 110 tons of fishnets we sent to the recycling plant, would otherwise have been incinerated or even worse, continued ghostfishing for many more years, killing large numbers of animals.

We are very delighted about it and very much motivated to make 2016 even better! Please stay with us for exciting updates throughout this year and follow us on Facebook and Twitter!
