    A large fishing net, estimated to weigh about two tons, was removed from the beach at Kapa‘a fronting the Coral Reef Resort.

An estimated 2-ton fishing net was removed from the beach fronting the Coral Reef Resort in Kapaa last week, according to the Department of Land and Natural Resources.

The net was removed Friday with the hotel’s permission. DLNR staff said no marine life was seen to be trapped in the net.

Two trucks with chains were required to pull the partially buried net onto the hotel’s property.

A social media post Wednesday evening alerted staffers of the Kauai office of the Division of Boating and Ocean Recreation to the net, DLNR said in a statement Friday.

Conserve Kauai collected the debris that came loose during the removal, DLNR said.

DLNR said the net will be shipped to Oahu for disposal.

Report marine debris on shorelines to DLNR by emailing dlnr.marine.debris@hawaii.gov.
