Healthy Seas recycles discarded fishing nets in to yarn

Healthy Seas celebrates an important milestone in its successful pilot program in the North Sea region. More than 20 tons of discarded fishing nets have been brought in so far, and are being stored in the Healthy Seas depot in Scheveningen harbour, the Netherlands.

On the 24th of September, these nets are going to be transported to Slovenia, where they will be regenerated into ECONYL yarn. With these events, the initiative takes the next step forward to more pilot programs in the Adriatic Sea and the Mediterranean Sea.

The initial phase of the Healthy Seas initiative focused on activities mainly in the North Sea pilot region (Netherlands and Belgium). Divers’ groups have been active this summer, regularly bringing their recovered waste fishing nets to the Healthy Seas reception and collection facility in Scheveningen.

Last weekend, the final mission of the season took place in Dutch waters, executed by the Dutch salvage company PAN Salvage, four divers, photographers and an archaeologist.

The more than 20 tons of waste fishing nets will be transported to Slovenia on 24 September. This is being arranged by Nofir, Healthy Seas’ new Associate Partner.
