When people ask us scuba divers on the Gold Coast why we carry knives the first thing that comes to their mind is protection against marine life such as sharks, eels, stingrays ect. Well the truth is probably more frightening. Underneath our waterways lay kilometres of discarded fishing lines, hooks, ropes and whatever else fisherman use as part of their recreational activities. Most dives taken around the Gold Coast Seaway entails releasing marine life (if they are lucky enough to be still alive) and removing the endless amount of fishing line that seems to be growing day by day.

  1. Great insight into what really happens to the “one that got away”. Love the work you divers do, happy little chappy swimming away at the end. I’d like to see fishing banned.
