ghost fishing net

ghost net

在馬爾地夫發現很多受了傷的海龜,牠們不但身上多處被劃傷,有些更肢體斷裂!原來牠們是被「幽靈漁網」所害!這些「幽靈漁網」都是被遺棄在海中的漁網,雖無人使用卻繼續傷害海裡生物!這些漁網會割傷海龜的身體,受了傷的海龜更要面對其他捕食者的襲擊。科學家正努力找出這些漁網的來源,希望盡快抓到原兇!
many injured turtles were found in the Maldives; there are scratches all over their bodies, and some even with ripped-off flippers. all these physical injures were caused by “ghost fishing nets”! these “ghost nets” were abandoned fishing nets in the sea. they continued to hurt many sea creatures even they are not in use. these nets could cut the turtle deeply and these injured turtles would still need to face other predators’ attacks, putting them in great danger. scientists are now working hard to identify the source of these ghost nets and hoping to find out who the culprits were.
