Make every dive a Dive for Debris

On our last liveaboard trip to Egypt we conducted a clean up dive around The Barge dive site.  We were pleased to see there wasnt as much rubbish as we have seen on previous trips but our divers still managed to collect several bags of items that dont belong in the oceans!  We even found a bag full of used light bulbs.  It isnt acceptable to dispose of items in the oceans but as divers we can all do our bit and collect anything that shouldnt be there when we dive.

Just some of the rubbish we collected…

On the same trip we found a large fishing net across a stretch of coral. Luckily our quick thinking divers were able to gently remove it without further damage.  What a shame the fishermen could be so careless, thankfully no creatures had become entangled and we were able to completely remove the whole net.
