CapeCodOnline: The third year of an effort to recover and dispose of abandoned fishing gear—known as “ghost gear”—from the seabed along Provincetown, Truro and Wellfleet is underway through March 15, according to Laura Ludwig, project manager for the Provincetown Center for Coastal Studies.

The recovery likely will take 3 days, depending on the weather, Ludwig said Friday. Four Provincetown lobster boats are participating in the project: Miss Lilly, All In, Little Sammy III and Morgan Gayle.
