Mapping ghost gear in Narragansett Bay

In the summer of 2021, Charlie Enright took an excursion out on his local waters of Narragansett Bay with the Commercial Fisheries Research Foundation onboard the fishing vessel Christopher Andrew to learn about the problems ghost gear causes for local habitats and commercial fisherman.

Together with the fisherman, the Commercial Fisheries Research Foundation is working to locate and map derelict fishing gear, commonly know as ghost gear, to put together a strategy to remove it from the Bay.
