Description

A woven and stitched, 25 kilo, polypropylene sack with the Fishing for Litter logo printed on the front. Fishing for Litter is a scheme that supports the fishing industry in collecting any marine litter that gets caught in their nets as part of normal fishing activities. Participating vessels are given this hardwearing and reusable bag to fill, which they bring ashore for harbour staff to recycle or responsibly dispose of the waste. Between 2016-2017, 470 tonnes of rubbish were removed from the sea in this way by volunteers on 989 separate boats. This simple and demonstrative project is operated by KIMO (Kommunernes International Miljoorganisation) who aim to protect, preserve and enhance northern Europe's oceans.
