Taiwan | Volunteers remove 800kg of "ghost" fishing nets from reefs inside South Penghu Marine NP

A volunteer cleanup on Thursday to help protect coral reefs in Penghu County yielded more than 800kg of abandoned fishing nets, the Marine National Park Headquarters said yesterday.


Scuba divers last week reported that “ghost nets,” or abandoned nets, covered coral reefs off the coast of Dongi Island (東吉嶼), the park headquarters said.
