Driftnet traps sharks, horseshoe crabs, stingrays on Pulau Semakau (9 Aug 2013)

Sadly, but not surprisingly, we came across a driftnet during our National Day visit to Pulau Semakau.
In the short portion of the net that I surveyed, I saw 14 horseshoe crabs that were still alive and struggling and seemed freshly entangled in the net. Including two pairs of male and female. They all looked like Coastal horseshoe crabs.
