Video from COMDEKS Turkey “Ghost Net Hunters” Project

Divers from the “Ghost Net Hunters”, COMDEKS grantees in Turkey, free a Dusky Grouper from a net in Gökova Bay off the Datça-Bozburun peninsula.

The Ghost Net Hunters Project is one of nine COMDEKS funded projects working to enhance the resilience of the Datça-Bozburun peninsula, the target socio-ecological production landscape/seascape in Turkey. The Ghost Net Hunters Project aims to raise awareness and educate local fishing communities about the ghost net issue. The project works closely with fishermen to determine the locations of ghost nets and remove them from the marine environment.
