Thats incredible!
1500 crab pots every year are lost at sea! Thats a rediculous amount!
You would think GPS would have put an end to poor navigating by now.There is no reason for them to lose that many pots anymore! I can see some getting a bouy line cut by a passing ship or something but not that many in a day!
