The Plasticus Fishus Netus is here to remind you that fishing nets, ropes, and fishing lines lost at sea kill an estimated 100,000 sea animals annually by entanglement.
While you can't clean up hundreds of tons of abandoned fishing nets yourself, you can make a big difference by taking a few small steps:
- Support the organizations organizing ocean and beach cleanups.
- Make a habit of picking up a few pieces of plastic every time you go to the beach.
- Learn about programs providing fishermen with a place to dispose of their old fishing gear free of charge.
- Vote for local and national leaders supporting sustainable practices with a plan to fight plastic pollution.

Join the fight to keep the ocean for fish, not plastic.
