For recreational and professional lobstermen alike, the loss of and disposal of lobster traps are continuing problems. They hinder conservation efforts, pollute the marine environment, impede navigation, and put the lives of mariners and the general public at risk. To prove this, a submarine survey, marine debris survey covering three states, and leaching experiment were conducted. Throughout the project, procedures were implemented to protect the environment such as releasing caught marine life and recycling found lobster traps.
