GAIA Biomaterials, in collaboration with South African-based Kompost-it, FishSA, Alnet, and the Norwegian Independent Research organisation, SINTEF, are replacing harmful polyethene fishing nets with biodegradable nets engineered to match the performance of conventional fishing nets, but if lost or dumped, these nest will disintegrate into biomass without any toxins or micro-plastics.
