Sun­der­land Ma­rine backs the ANLRS

Carpworld - - EDITORIAL -

The ANLRS is de­lighted to an­nounce that Sun­der­land Ma­rine, spe­cial­ists in Ma­rine, Aqua­cul­ture and An­gling Lakes In­sur­ance, has kindly of­fered to do­nate £1000 to the scheme in sup­port of its work for the year ahead in pro­mot­ing the re­cy­cling of an­gling fish­ing line. The team from Sun­der­land Ma­rine, which of­fers in­sur­ance for com­mer­cial fish­ing ves­sels, aqua­cul­ture busi­ness and more re­cently an­gling lakes, felt that there are strong links be­tween the busi­nesses that they in­sure and the ANLRS’S drive to max­imise the amount of an­gling monofil­a­ments be­ing re­cy­cled prop­erly.

Viv Shears, one of the ANLRS vol­un­teers, said “The re­cy­cling scheme was al­ways an­gling-fo­cused but is ex­pand­ing to work with other or­gan­i­sa­tions that deal with lost and dis­carded equip­ment from all types of fish­ing op­er­a­tions. Get­ting an­glers to work with th­ese or­gan­i­sa­tions is only a pos­i­tive for the sport and the whole of the fish in­dus­try.”

ANLRS is a non-profit, do­na­tion-funded and vol­un­teer lead or­gan­i­sa­tion that is en­cour­ag­ing an­glers of all dis­ci­plines to re­cy­cle their monofil­a­ment and braided lines, rather than be­ing dis­card­ing them via land­fill or in­cin­er­a­tion.

Launched in March 2018 the scheme now has over 160 shops signed up along with sev­eral fish­eries, char­ter boats and fish­ery col­leges.
