NIFHA Re-Launch Fishing For Litter Initiative

During May Fishing For Litter was relaunched across the three local fishing harbours !

"The fishing community have unique access to marine litter in the open ocean and seabed - when we catch it, we bag it and bring it to shore. It is our contribution to help clean our seas.

Fishing For Litter fishermen in Northern Ireland and around the world have removed thousands of tonnes of litter in the sea so far, and we plan to ramp up efforts to tackle the increasing problem." Jenny Lau, Environmental Officer NIFHA
