ATHENS - Greek and Dutch divers have removed two tonnes of discarded plastic fishing nets from the seabed in northern Greece, where they posed a risk to local marine life, including a rare endangered species of Mediterranean seahorse.
The nets from the coastal region of Stratoni will be recycled into yarn to create products like socks, sportswear, swimwear, and carpets, according to the Healthy Seas organization, which works in the North, Adriatic and Mediterranean seas to clear waste.
Since 2013 Healthy Seas has removed 453 tonnes of abandoned nets from the seabed. Because they are made of non-biodegradeable plastic, they could remain in the sea for hundreds of years. Virtually invisible, marine life can easily become entangled.

Catching fish in the current fishing campaign in Angola is expected to see an estimated reduction of around 30% for a total of 230,000 tonnes, said the national director of Fisheries.
António Barradas said that the reduction of approved fishing quotas aims to prevent the extinction of marine species and halt the increase in unemployment among operators.
The Ministry of Fisheries and the Sea expects that 150,000 tonnes of sardines and 80,000 horse mackerel will be caught, 50,000 tonnes of which will be Cunene horse mackerel and 30,000 will be Cape horse mackerel.
Fishermen already dealing with a dramatic reduction in the amount of a key bait fish they are allowed to harvest will likely face an additional cut next year that could drive up the price of lobster for consumers.
Regulators on the East Coast are contending with a drop in the population of herring, a key forage fish species that has been used as lobster bait for generations. Cuts in catch quota this year will mean the total haul for 2019 will be less than a fifth of the 2014 harvest, which was more than 200 million pounds.
A fishery management board is due to make a decision about the 2020 catch limits in early June. The options include maintaining this year’s levels or reducing them further, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has said in public documents.
The agency wants to avoid overfishing at a time when a scientific assessment has shown a below-average number of young herring are joining the population. Scientists have said it’s not clear why that’s the case, but two possibilities they’ve cited are climate change and an abundance of predators.

In a report following the 2019 fish farming indaba held recently, the Livestock and Meat Advisory Council (LMAC) said the proposal would capitalise an aquaculture development fund they want introduced.
“For Zimbabwe to realise the full potential of aquaculture, the private sector and government must work together with financial institutions to establish an Aquaculture Development Fund….,” the report read.
“It was proposed (in the meeting) that a surtax of 10 cents/kg on all fish imports entering Zimbabwe be implemented, which will then directly capitalise the fund. This innovative idea was discussed and recommended by participants.”
OSLO - Norwegian cruise ship operator Hurtigruten has signed a 7.5-year deal to buy liquefied biogas (LBG) made from dead fish and other organic waste to help power its vessels, the firm said on Thursday.
Under the contract with Biokraft, Hurtigruten ships will start receiving near-daily supplies of LBG, with the first delivery taking place in 2020, it added.
The company last year said it would invest about USD 800 million to refit six vessels to partly run on the renewable fuel.
“?ur ships will literally be powered by nature. Biogas is the greenest fuel in shipping, a no-brainer for us, and a huge advantage for the environment,” Hurtigruten chief executive Daniel Skjeldam said in a statement.
The firm declined to provide a figure for the total value of the contract.
Australian aquatic ecologists say the National Carp Control Plan (NCCP) falls short on safety and efficacy while calling for more research and funding before the deadline at the end of 2018.
Researchers were investigating whether a species-specific herpes virus, Cyprinid herpesvirus-3, could reduce numbers of European carp in the Australian waterways where the pest was detrimental to the native environment.
At the end of last year researchers were given a 12-month extension to analyse some of the research gaps identified.
