Tauchbasis Prora (Rügen)

Recovering ghost nets with Tom Kürten at the German Island Rügen. During this week we will clear various wrecks from nets.

 

Rügen 2022

The year is already more than half over. Here is a short review.

In May we were on the island of Rügen and were very successful in recovering nets. With a group of 30 people and a total of 4 boats we were active for two days off Rügen. The result was 300kg (dry net), which we could recover.

First ghost net recovery 2022 Off the island of Rügen

2021 we were guests on Rügen in June and October. In the two missions we were able to remove almost 4 tons of ghost nets from the wreck of the Flying Dutchman. Around the island of Rügen there are more than 1500 wrecks and on almost all of them you can find old nets. Already during our first visits we realized that there is a lot of work for us here.
