What People are Saying:
I have always wanted to retrieve lost gear to help clean our fishing grounds. I can tell you from personal experience that there are some awful piles of old gear on the bottom. I have hauled up snarls of gear from the bottom that has consisted of between 20 to 60 traps and there are some snarls down there that no one can haul up.

We applaud GOMLF and are proud to be part of such an impressive effort.
GOMLF’s commitment to industry-related projects is exemplary. The ability of the Foundation to bring the required partners together to allow for a coastal at-sea cleanup shows off their talents as a facilitator for the fishing industry. And, if a little bit of research can piggyback on these great projects, that’s even better.
