Who we are...

Ghost Diving is a registered charity founded in 2012 and run by volunteer scuba divers who have specialized in the removal of lost fishing gear and other marine debris since 2009. The organization was previously known as Ghost Fishing Foundation.

Ghost Diving is the largest, and most experienced global diving organization working on the 'ghost fishing' topic with a track record in a significant variation of countries and international waters. 'Ghost fishing' is a common term that describes what happens when derelict fishing gear 'continues to fish', another term used is abandoned, lost, or otherwise discarded fishing gear (ALDFG).

Ghost Diving consists of exclusively volunteers carrying out innovative and challenging nature conservation projects independent or with the help of known and unknown fellow environmental organizations. Our efforts have brought the phenomenon of 'ghost fishing' to the attention of the public through key international collaborations, inspiring underwater photography, and unparalleled results.

"Ghost fishing gear is everywhere, but so are we!"
