Remora

Ghost nets are parts of fishing nets that have been lost or abandoned in the sea by crews. These pieces of gear carry on trapping fish and cetacea before breaking into thousands of pieces to become part of the plastic soup floating in our oceans.

Remora is a system of RFID tags that are designed to be attached to tuna seining nets. Paired with an app, these unobtrusive devices help fishermen locate, retrieve, and repair aboard ghost nets. The tags are safety orange to contrast the azure hue of the high seas. They are designed to stand out.
