Personnel of the Bay Islands Conservation Association, BICA, discovered that a huge abandoned fishing net has drifted from the open sea onto “Raggedy Cay”, one of the popular dive sites on Utila’s West End. It's so big that they are unable to lift or remove it, particularly as initial reports stated that the net was at a depth between 30 and 70 meters / 100 to 200 feet and as big as a volleyball court.


 


Tec and recreational dive teams are needed immediately to help.
