The volunteers involved in Project Driftnet hope to document the various types of organisms trapped within abandoned gill and trammel nets and fish traps along the coasts of Singapore.
This small-scale study aims to document:
a) location of the abandoned nets and traps;
b) the variety and types of nets and traps used and abandoned; and
c) organisms trapped within the nets and traps.
Nets and traps will be removed and properly disposed off after data collection.
We hope the data gathered will help better understand the impact abandoned driftnets and contribute towards better management of their use on our shores.
