Scientists say entanglement poses a serious obstacle to the recovery of endangered whales on the U.S. east coast, especially North Atlantic right whales, which may number as few as 444. Rope and nets often do the snarling and can involve other types of gear including hooks, buoys, traps, even anchors and other marine debris. Over time, the gear exacts a painful toll. It can slice flesh, deform bone, amputate flukes, and restrict breathing, eating, and swimming as it drags through the water.
