I watched this video today about a man rescuing a turtle tangled in a fishing net and thought why is this so common? google it and see for yourself https://www.google.com/search?rlz=1C1CHBF_enUS808US808&ei=3PWRXNsSj_azBYXQkIAN&q=man+rescues++turtle+tangled+in+fishing+net&oq=man+rescues++turtle+tangled+in+fishing+net&gs_l=psy-ab.3…0.0..8570…0.0..0.0.0…….0……gws-wiz.rPd4XvZgmL0
Just found this on thedodo.com – Approximately 640,000 tons of fishing gear are left in our oceans every year, according to WAP. In some cases, illegal fishermen may deliberately dump their nets into the ocean to avoid getting caught. Mar 19, 2018
Fishermen who make their living on the water should show a little more respect don’t you think?
