Black Coral Reef Net Removal 23/11/12 - 24/11/12


Resident Downbelow CD Richard Swann discovered a fishing net stretching almost 100m long across the reef. He gathered a group of Staff, Interns and Sabah Park Officers to remove the net. We managed to remove most of it on the first day and on the second day Me and a team of three other interns went down to finish off the job! Hopefully that will be the end of that net on the reef.

Its really important we keep removing these nets as they just catch more fish and can ruin the marine life found on the reefs as we know it. Which is why net removals are crucial to the survival of the reefs when the nets are found.
