Poorly marked fishing gear and small craft safety an article from the RYA

"Fishing gear, which poses a hazard to navigation because it cannot be readily seen, has been a concern to boaters for many years and it has been on the RYA’s agenda for just as long. There is no simple solution to the problem, but the RYA is keen to ensure that as much as possible is done to ensure the safety of small craft navigating in the vicinity of static fishing gear.

The RYA wants to achieve better marking of static fishing gear, making it visible by day and at night. 

The RYA have relaunched its fishing gear entanglement reporting service with a simple to complete electronic form in an attempt to collate quantitative data to support boaters concern."
