Debris divers and rubbish wranglers are being called on for the coming Macandrew Bay clean-up.

Project AWARE co-ordinator Emma Young said the range of marine rubbish on the harbour floor at Macandrew Bay was diverse.

It ranged from ''the smallest bits of plastic, car batteries and appliances, to enormous fishing nets''.

The bay also included several species of marine life, including sea-horses, octopus and sea lions, she said.

''Let's keep it clean for them.''
