Ghost Nets are Scary
- "Nets and ropes come primarily from the commercial fishing industry, drifting for thousands of miles across the ocean and winding up on Hawaiian shore. Whales, turtles, monk seals, birds and fish get entangled in these nets and could die. If they are washed back out to sea, they can continue to harm wildlife." - excerpt from article about Surfrider Kauai Chapter's Net Patrol appearing on the chapter's website. Also see this video about other net removal projects.
