Currently the ropes & nets from the fishing industry are not recycled and may end up as landfill or is stockpiled on site and in some cases ends up dumped in our oceans, contributing significantly to ocean pollution.

Ocean-bound plastic is any discarded plastic material within 50 kilometers of our precious seas, streams, rivers, and lakes that is likely to enter the ocean.
