UN World Environment Day
‘Beat Plastic Pollution’ – this year’s World Environment Day theme – a call to action to combat one of the great environmental challenges of our time. fish21 presented to 900+ people worldwide on sustainable fishing line use at IEMA’s webinar. As part of the presentation (starts at 22.54 mins), we launched our jointly branded infographic with GGGI.
Anglers National Line Recycling Survey
fish21 was delighted to partner with both the Anglers National Line Recycling Scheme and Global Ghost Gear Initiative to prepare the executive summary report on their line survey.
On 29th June, fish21 delivered a talk and workshop on ‘sustainability and the tackle trade’ at the Efttex Expo, Amsterdam. Our August 2018 Tackle Trade World feature reports back from the Expo, where we recommended that the tackle trade worked together to solve common sustainability challenges, starting with single-use plastic packaging.
