BIO gillnets

Every year, around 13,000 fishnets are lost in Norwegian waters. “Ghost nets” made from nylon do not decompose but rather continue to ensnare marine animals. In the project BIO gillnets funded by the Norwegian Seafood Research Fund and the Research Council of Norway, researchers have therefore been working to develop a net that breaks down after some time in the water. The researchers have also looked at whether the degradation causes microplastic emissions in the sea.
