Port of Oakland makes an impact to reduce fishing line pollution
Oct. 7, 2015
Fishing is popular in the San Francisco Bay, but improperly discarded fishing lines can entangle and kill marine wildlife. Fishing line can also remain in the environment for over 600 years! The Port, California State Parks and the Audubon Society have teamed up to place fishing line recycling containers at Port View Park and San Antonio Pier. The white receptacles will keep help discarded lines out of the water and away from unsuspecting animals.
