‘Continuous removal of ghost nets best way to save marine life’

This year, around mid-November, a team from the Goa Diving Centre, led by divemaster Lavito Rodrigues and comprising Gary Lamare, Jonathan Fernandes, Arun Seelan and Joaquim Fernandes, pulled up nearly 200kg of abandoned fishing nets entangled in the sunken ship, S S Mary, at Vasco’s Grand Island. In 2020, Rodrigues and his team had pulled up 100kg of ghost nets from the same area.
