Cleaning up the Infidel project - Opening of 2014
---------------------------------------------------------------------

The net removal of the Infidel wreck around Catalina Island continues -
After several trips in 2013, a new team of divers and volunteers came back to Catalina to further progress on the Infidel clean-up project.

Several tons of nets have been removed during the last 18months of regular dives -
Last cleaning trip was on Dec 2013, and previous videos:

Why Cleaning Nets:
----------------------------

Nets within or trapped around various wrecks or structures are constantly killing marine life - more info on:
ghostfishing.org
Such projects require a lot of resources, from equipment to volunteers and diver support to help during decompression. The collected nets (more than 2000 pounds so far) will be recycled - more info on:
healthyseas.org

The Infidel wreck lands by 150ft of water, which makes the diving and net cutting conditions always challenging, also in an area subject to strong currents.
