During the weekend of April 16 and 17 2016 Subvision Production filmed underwater and topside footage for a video production. The subject of the video was derelict fishing gear and resulted in 4K footage of fish net removal.
The location in the Gulf Islands in British Columbia was just of North Pender Island and the topside weather was beautiful. The waters however were not very clear and the currents and the diver activities with the silt from the net removal made the filming challenging to say the least.
A combination of commercial and volunteer divers worked for 2 long days underwater and removed 24 large bags of seine net as well as some recreation fishing gear stuck on the reef. A large amount of invertebrate life was returned to the ocean alive.
The 4K underwater video frame grab of derelict fish net removal depicts divers removing nets underwater as well as footage of the net coming to the surface and the processing of the net of the boat.
This is effort is part of a wider growing movement to establish a BC / Canada wide derelict fishing gear removal and recycling program.
The final video productions is expected to be released on World Oceans Day in June . Short clips are available for purchase after June 8th 2016 and will be part of the Subvision Productions stock footage library. More footage of derelict fishing gear s available in 2K .
