In 2018, Waterhaul's founder, Harry Dennis, was working as marine scientist for a charity project engaging community action on plastic pollution.

Lost or discarded fishing gear AKA 'ghost gear' is the most abundant form of macro-plastic in the ocean, and the problem increases by 640,000 tonnes every year. These nets are also the most lethal form of plastic to marine life. Lost in the ocean, their function to entangle marine life continues. Constructed from high-quality plastics, these nets keep on catching for over 500 years, unless removed. Textiles Projects, Us Beaches, Sea And Ocean, Newfoundland, Marine Life, Aquatic
