Fish­er­men join lit­ter cam­paign

The Kerryman (North Kerry) - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

DIN­GLE port has joined the ‘Fish­ing For Lit­ter’ national net­work which sees lo­cal fish­er­men work­ing to­gether with BIM to ad­dress the marine lit­ter is­sue in an at­tempt to de­crease the lev­els of marine de­bris.

Fish­ing For Lit­ter is a recog­nised EU scheme that asks fish­er­men to col­lect the lit­ter that comes up in nets and keep it on board their boats so that it can be dis­posed of prop­erly. Filled bags are de­posited on the quay­side at par­tic­i­pat­ing har­bours and they are moved by har­bour staff to a ded­i­cated skip or bin for dis­posal.
