The 27th, 28th and 29th of September 2011 we have had huge dives against debris days. We were really surprised to find a lot of different kinds of stuff underwater. The most debries we found were glass bottles, fishing lines, fishing nets, scuba gear and a huge amount of-masks (39 in only one dive!) . We also discovered 3 pairs of sunglasses and a fish trap, we have also saved 2 fish imprisoned inside it! The amount of debris found per dive was between 6 and 30 kg!
This collection makes sense because we put online all the information: www.projectaware.org. The purpose of this international database is to make a report from all the data receive around the world and contact the media, the local government to change the mentality and give a sense of responsibilitythe locals and the tourists.
Thanks Linnéa for this good initiative.
And we hope to find a clean ocean floor as soon as possible.
