Boat owners, charters, dive boats, and interested individuals are invited to form teams and join us in cleaning up our ocean by participating in the first ever Blockade Runner Fishing 4 Plastic Tournament! Teams will be going offshore near the Gulf Stream to find sargassum mats (a type of brown algae), which are great at collecting plastics that have found their way into the oceans. Teams will also be searching for ghost gear (lost fishing gear) that have been known to entangle marine life, including marine mammals and sea turtles. Our goal is to delicately remove as much plastic pollution as possible on June 3rd while having fun!
