The International Diving Centre, a partner of Mongoose Adventures, conducted a programme in Trincomalee to assist in the removal of debris and fishing nets which litter the Swami Rock dive site. The venture is another step in the series of programmes organised under the “dive against debris” campaign.

A team consisting of nine divers removed up to about 250 kg of underwater debris and many fishing nets that trap fish and damage coral reefs. “There are so many fishnets covering the place and on every dive we find fish entangled in lines, which are also hazardous for divers,” said Nishan Silva, Managing Director – Mongoose Adventures.
