Boynton Beach, FL (March 24, 2006)
– In an effort to help increase awareness about fishing line
recycling, LineOFF, Inc. is now including brochures from the Monofilament
Recovery & Recycling Program (MRRP) in its shipments that go
to Florida residents.
“Florida is known as the fishing capital of the world and
we don’t want fishing line to spoil our beautiful waters.
The MRRP is a great program that helps educate our Florida fishing
enthusiasts as well as fisherman who visit us from around the world
on the importance of keeping fishing line out of our waters and
off the coral reefs,” stated Beverly Annabel, operations director,
LineOFF. Annabel added, “Our mission with LineOFF has always
been to do our part to clean up our reefs and protect our environment
here in Florida, in the United States, and across the world.”
“LineOFF is an excellent contribution to assist in the problem
of improperly discarded fishing line into the environment,”
stated Nicole Adimey, biologist with the U. S. Fish & Wildlife
Service. Adimey added, “Being proactive in the effort to keep
monofilament line out of our waters results in greater awareness
of public safety and protection of Florida's unique wildlife.”
LineOFF was created to encourage frequent line changes and environmental
recycling of fishing line. LineOFF has received numerous endorsements
from environmental organizations including: Florida's Monofilament
Recovery and Recycling Program, Ocean Watch Foundation, The Ocean
Conservancy and the Bahamas Billfish Tournament.
