RYE, N.H. — Members of New Hampshire’s commercial fishing community joined volunteers to collect lobster traps and other gear that have been washed ashore by winter storms.

The 27th annual cleanup event was held Sunday in Rye Harbor and the Hampton Harbor State Marina. Last year, more than 60 commercial harvesters helped to clean up six tons of traps and fishing gear.

The event is a partnership among the New Hampshire Commercial Fishermen’s Association, the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department, the New Hampshire Division of Ports and Harbors, the Hampton Public Works Department and North Atlantic Services.
