In this episode we speak about ghost fishing, how we can work together to improve fishing gear and how all of us can play a role in cleaning it up with Joel Baziuk, the Deputy Director of the Global Ghost Gear Initiative (GGGI) from the Ocean Conservancy. Joel helps to coordinate global efforts to improve fishing gear to decrease the risks of it being lost at sea and to help coordinate global cleanup efforts.

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!
