August 9: Lost and Abandoned Fishing Gear in Puget Sound
speaker: Jason Morgan, Northwest Straits Foundation
An alarming amount of recreational and commercial fishing pots and nets are lost in Puget Sound each year. This derelict fishing gear may continue to “ghost fish” for decades, capturing and killing marine organisms with no one to harvest them and degrading critical marine habitat. Learn more about the problems and solutions of derelict fishing gear in Puget Sound.
