Other Media | FishFocus: If we can’t untangle this mess, Norway’s blue industry will never be green

Monday, February 19, 2024

Lost fishing lines and ropes are a growing problem. As a leading fishing nation, Norway, with its long coastline and fish-rich waters, is particularly vulnerable to marine litter. A new study from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) shows that only a third of all ropes produced and sold in Norway can be recycled in a sustainable way.

The rest are burned, buried, sent out of the country — or just pile up and contribute to something called ghost fishing. That’s when lost or abandoned fishing gear, floating in the ocean or anchored to the bottom, inadvertently continues to catch marine creatures long after it was in commercial use.
