Monofilament Recovery and Recycling

-Monofilament line is another name for single-strand, high-density nylon fishing line that is used on fishing reels. Used line can be harmful to boat motors and marine wildlife. Birds and animals cannot see discarded monofilament fishing line, so it is easy for them to become tangled in it and starve, drown or lose a limb. Visit the link for more info. on the Texas Monofilament Recovery and Recycling Program (MRRP) coordinated by the Texas Sea Grant College Program.
