fishing line issue


great to read n view on the news about fishing line issue. thanks to Ian Banks and others action/clean up/education is actually going to happen.

megabats (flying-fox) are regularly caught up in fishing line. ending up hanging for days in trees.
"The sadest thing you will see today.
Some will write this off as just collateral damage, but it is sad, very sad.
Little Green Turtle drowned in the last few days, caught in more than 20 individually snagged fishing lines in the one spot, you can see the lead sinkers of 6 of the lines. There are hundreds of kilometres of junked fishing line in the seaway and tons of lead sinkers and lures.
It is common to see fish and morays caught but it breaks your heart when you see these little fellas caught and the struggle marks on them from trying to get free.
Up to 10 Green Turtles live in the Seaway at any one time.

Is there a sensible way around the junk fishing line problem other than divers doing regular cleanups?"

This image was taken on Wednesday 24th June.
A clean up event is being organised for Sunday 5th July
High tide will be at 10:34am
