Some nets on Labrador (24 Dec 2011)

This bunch of nets was entangled in a branch on Labrador shore.
We also saw a few more smaller batches of nets.

The net sure looked much larger after we wrestled it free. The volume of the pile was 38cm x 30cm x 12cm.
The net seems rather new. There were two kinds of fibres in this net. A woven fibre with a mesh size of about 13cm, and a monofilament plastic kind with a mesh size of about 4cm.
There were also bits of nets stuck high up on plants growing on the natural cliffs.
There was also another net badly entangled among the roots of a fallen tree.
But the rest of the shore was quite clean of floating plastic and debris.
Thanks to Andy and Marcus for helping to remove the net. More about this trip on the wild shores of singapore blog.
