Spot the Pot

         
The Campaign Get Involved Forum Photos Video

Each year the coastguard deals with 200-300 incidents where propellers or rudders of boats become snagged on floating lines and fishing gear.

Many of these incidents are avoidable, which is why MBM has decided to launch a campaign to introduce mandatory rules regarding the visibility of lobster pots and other fishing gear and to put pressure on authorities to come down harder on those that flout the rules.

You can read our manifesto, learn more about the campaign, sign our online petition or see the damage caused by lobster pots in our photo and video galleries.

There’s plenty of interesting info coming out on our forums. Boaters

and fishermen alike are putting their views across – with photographic

evidence to boot!
