More fish­ing line bins

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Near You -

TWENTY more ded­i­cated fish­ing line bins will be in­stalled along the Swan and Can­ning rivers af­ter a suc­cess­ful trial of 25 bins last year.

En­vi­ron­ment Min­is­ter John Day said 8788m of fish­ing line, 1743 hooks and sinkers, 1508 bait bags and 254 lures and tackle packets were col­lected last year as recre­ational fish­ers made “ex­cel­lent use” of the bins.

An aware­ness cam­paign will be launched to warn fish­ers of the dan­gers of dis­carded fish­ing tackle and to alert the public to the lo­ca­tion of bins.
