Lost fishing gear is a global problem causing the entanglement of marine wildlife, degradation of marine habitats, reduction of commercial fishing stocks from ‘ghost fishing’, and vessel navigational hazards. Very little information is known about lost fishing gear in BC, particularly why and where commercial gear becomes lost. This knowledge is important to help resource managers understand how to mitigate lost gear and where to target removal efforts.
Results from this survey will be used to help determine gear retrieval sites in BC and fulfill the requirements of a Master’s thesis.
