Recycling Fishing Nets.
The BBC has published an intriguing video report titled “Fishing nets being recycled to help save the sea”. This report addresses a
long-standing issue: what to do with old fishing nets. In the past, these nets were often dumped at sea or discarded in landfills.
However, thanks to a scheme organized by Keep Britain Tidy, these old trawling nets are now being recycled in the UK for the first
time. This innovative approach not only solves a waste problem but also contributes to marine conservation. Check out the full report
on the BBC’s website to learn more about this inspiring initiative. Click here

The article on Begin To Fish titled “How Are Monofilament Fishing Lines Recycled?” provides a comprehensive guide on the recycling
process of monofilament fishing lines. It highlights the importance of proper disposal and recycling of these lines to prevent

plastic pellets. It also provides information on where to recycle old fishing lines, including local tackle shops and designated drop-off
points. This article is a must-read for anyone interested in sustainable fishing practices and environmental conservation. Click here
