Fishing nets biodegrade so they don’t pollute the sea
Fishing nets are typically made of nylon or other synthetic plastics. The problem with this is that when they break, they're often simply abandoned, polluting the ocean and harming its wildlife. In the past we've written about Bureo Skateboards, a project that's cleaning up 'ghost' nets from the coast of Chile and turning them into skateboards. Now a Spanish design student has created Remora, a sturdy fishing net that breaks down safely if it gets lost or abandoned.
