Learn about ghost nets

North Coast Times - - NEWS -

THE WA Museum has a Ghost Net Zone at Clark­son’s Ocean Keys Shop­ping Cen­tre this week.

The in­for­ma­tion pan­els aim to teach peo­ple about ghost nets, which are dis­carded fish­ing nets, and the threats they pose, as well as ma­rine con­ser­va­tion.

Through­out the week, an artist will trans­form nets into a piece of art on the reef in­side the zone and peo­ple can join in, mak­ing sea crea­tures from ma­rine de­bris.

When the in­stal­la­tion is com­plete, it will form part of the Voy­age to the Deep: Un­der­wa­ter Ad­ven­tures ex­hi­bi­tion at the WA Mar­itime Museum in Fre­man­tle.

The zone will be in place un­til June 25.
