Prevent Monofilament
from Becoming

The Next Invasive

Used fishing line left on the shoreline, on piers or docks, or in the water is harmful to fish, wildlife, people, and boat motors. Fishing line or monofilament takes 600 years to disintegrate
while in the water. Recycling offers a way to keep it out of the environment and converts it to make useful items. Remember, we can only do this with monofilament & fluorocarbon and not braided type lines.
To learn about the importance of keeping fishing line out of our waterways, understand the recycle steps, who does the actual recycling, and how you can educate others, visit these
