Jayden Pettyfer started this petition to Mr Michael Gove (Secretary of State for Environment)

Ghost nets have been causing problems for many years now, but very little is being done about it.

Ghost nets and fishing equipment can be discarded deliberately or lost by the fishing industry, often with the nets drifting through the ocean killing and being hazardous to wildlife for years. Ghost nets can also get caught on rocks and plants, with the fish dying needlessly and which in turn attracts predators, who also get trapped. The nets continue to cause problems for decades. 

It is more than clear that this is unacceptable and must be treated with strict action. The use of ghost nets must be made illegal to preserve marine life as much as possible. This can only be done by people like you who have a passion for wildlife and conservation. We are the only generation who can do anything to help the lives of these poor souls, so please take two minutes to sign this petition and share it with as many people as you possibly can to stop these nets taking the lives of innocent beings. 

Thank you.
