On May 25th, the Association Tegnùe di Chioggia organized the "Clean Seabeds" initiative. Many volunteers have been engaged in the recovery of marine debris found in the rocky habitats located in front of Chioggia (Venice). During the day, representatives of GHOST and DeFishGear project have distributed to divers a questionnaire designed to collect information on location and description of ghost nets possibly observed on the explored portions of different “tegnùe”. An information point on ghost net issue has been also set up. (see in this web site the section – Photo Gallery- “Our photo”) .
