The Northwest Straits Marine Conservation Initiative in Washington state has been granted US$5 million to remove discarded fishing nets that are a source of continuous harm to marine animals. Some nets are larger in size than a football field and will take one diver two days to bring to the surface. Besides clearing the waters for the benefit of aquatic inhabitants such as rare king crabs and whales, the funded endeavor is helping create many new jobs. 

Kudos US government for your concerned support in addressing this vital matter. We look forward to ever-expanding efforts that restore the freedom and safety of all co-inhabitants beneath the sea.
