It's estimated that we lose 640,000 tonnes of fishing gear every year in our oceans. This gear continues to kill fish and other marine organisms and pollutes our marine environment with plastic. What are we doing about it?

In this interview we speak with Bourton Scott and Ally Stocks from the Emerald Sea Protection Society. We talk about what's currently being done, what can be done in the future, how to get involved and what can be made from recycled nets pulled from the sea!
