The Problem

Discarded ‘ghost’ fishing gear is one of the largest sources of plastic pollution in our oceans, but right now, commercial fishing companies are getting off the hook and not being held to account for their part in this crisis.

The Solution

We can protect our oceans and stop dangerous ghost fishing gear from New Zealand going on an endless killing spree, but we have to act together to make that a reality, by calling on our representatives to hold the fishing industry to account. If we include fishing gear into the Waste Management Act, fishing companies will be forced to take responsibility for their gear.
