UK entanglements – a recent article from the Natural History Museum

This article was written in collaboration with several SEA partners and highlights some of the entanglement data gathered in recent years from the Hebrides, and the impact these incidents can and do have on the local fishing community. No entanglement is deliberate and no fisherman wants to catch these animals in their gear. SEA would like to highlight how engaging the creel fishermen of Scotland have been in this work so far, and how much they care about the marine environment and the animals they work alongside.
