Brixham Camping/Debris Dive/Beach Clean Weekend
On the Saturday we’re diving Hopes Nose, a popular fishing spot. With the focus being the removal of ghost fishing gear, mostly decades worth of monofilament fishing line which has now formed matted bundles on the sea floor. A local diver Peter Glanvill highlighted this major and persistent problem to us. Unfortunately, he’s seen first hand the damage its causing to marine and bird life. Please watch his video to see the extent of the issue: https://youtu.be/
We’re planning on joining forces with Baz from Brixham Dive Shack who has already carried out a large amount of ghost gear removal around Brixham. All suitably qualified divers are welcome to join us. Although, please confirm by clicking going so we have an idea of numbers.
The camping is at Upton Manor Farm a pretty family run campsite the good views, http://
