Ghost Diving is run by volunteer divers who have specialized in the removal of lost (ghost) fishing gear and other marine debris since 2009. Originally named Ghost Fishing Foundation, in 2020, the entire global organization was reorganized and renamed into Ghost Diving Foundation. Now spread over 16 countries in the world where local diving teams identify as Ghost Diving chapters, including France, Adriatic, Egypt, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Korea, Lebanon, New Zealand, Philippines, Poland, Spain and the UK. They are actively raising awareness about the "ghost fishing" issue on a global scale.
