MRF Staff and Directors are happy to support the Kota Kinabalu Dive Rangers with underwater cleanup events of discarded and illegal fishing gear within the Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park. This project collects illegal and abandoned fishing gears left by fishers who fish within the Park boundaries, and whose nets get caught on the Park’s coral reefs. These nets are often referred to as ‘ghost nets’ as they continue to fish indiscriminately even though they have been discarded. We often find (and release) live fish from the nets, and have found endangered sea turtles and all kinds of other creatures fall prey to the nets. MRF provides personnel and boat time as and how needed by the Dive Rangers as a way of showing our commitment to improving marine ecosystems in Sabah.
