Fishing Boats Killing Our Ocean
by Gerry Rasmus
We found this floating close to the shore line, One of many things cut loose or tossed overboard from fishing boats. We also find oil containers and garbage in general where people disposed of them at sea rather than bringing the waste back to shore.
Lazy uncaring people just out for the fast $
and the hell with tomorrow. Larger fines and more eyes need to be in and around our waterways.
We are all in this neighborhood together. We (ALL) need to do our part, pick up after ourselves and others, set examples, Educate, Educate, Educate. Teach the children and teach your neighbor to teach his neighbor. NOW is the only time there is. Time is running out.
Removing this took 5 of us over 400 pounds of floating death. It kills fish, breaks propellers on boats and ships or stops them. It takes divers to remove. Don't wait for someone else to take care. Reach out and make a difference
no matter how big or small. The powers above knows of our efforts and the rewards are priceless.
We are only as good as our last performance.

- This looks like the beginning of a small disaster. I'm glad someone's taking care of it. We need more of the right someones.

According to Wikipedia
- the garbage collects on the beach or in gyres near the centre of water bodies. Plastic items are the biggest threat to sea wildlife. Flotsam and Jetsam ain't just a classic heavy-metal band. It denotes anthropogenic sea waste in general. Search
