"Over 800.000 tons of ghost gear enter the marine ecosystem every year, entangling hundreds of thousands of cetaceans, sharks, turtles and seabirds and over one third of the fish catch worldwide."

Ghost fishing is a global threat to our marine environment, and therefore requires concerted effort at a global scale. This is why SAVE THE MED joined the Global Ghost Gear Initiative (GGGI) in 2020 to benefit from the advantages of network and collaboration. The GGGI is the world’s largest cross-sectoral alliance committed to driving solutions to the problem of ghost fishing. 

In the Mediterranean, Save The Med together with our partners, is now building a network of collaborators that's growing fast.
