Why is it sustainable?
Lagoon is a basket made weaving abandoned fishing nets.
At Gypsea Creations, the process goes from collecting fishing nets on the beach (Costa da Morte – Galicia) to crafting the finished product by hand.
This collection shines a light on the problem of ghost fighing while practically helping to solve it.
The term ghost gear refers to fishing lines and nets that are either abandoned or lost in the sea. Since they remain in the environment they actually keep fishing, trapping marine animals and potentially killing them.
