My dive shop Nautilus Dive Tech went out on a dive in our local area of Cabo San Lucas, Mx to pick up garbage. So much trash in the sea!
Now on most of my dives, I come up with a pocket full of garbage from tons of fishing line and lures to bottles and cans.
Considering that this local dive spot is a no fish zone, we came up with so much fishing line. I have seen the damage first hand on how hazardous this can be for marine life. A fishing line was strangling a beautiful Moray Eel. Another eel had a hook in their mouth. They will surely die because they can’t eat!
The strangest thing I have found in the ocean is a dirty diaper! WTH!! Or women products??
Please pick up your garbage. Take the bottles and cans, plastic waste, and cigarette butts back home with you.
I don’t understand humans – I would rather hang out with the fish!
