Abandoned net, Margate, February 2016

Lost and abandoned nets are often termed “ghost nets”.  The fine versions are not clearly visible to wildlife or divers and can cause serious injury and death, especially when floating at sea.  Many divers carry net-cutting tools with them, but the wildlife don’t have the same option.

A colourful note: sea green was added as a Crayola crayon in 1958, but a close look at all of the green shades reveals that this was probably just a new name for light green, which had been a Crayola colour since 1949.
