OCEANSIDE — The Oceanside Senior Anglers Club, as part of its on-going conservation efforts, has established a monofilament fishing line recycling program.
The club will meet at 9 a.m. May 6, and on the first Tuesday of each month at the Oceanside Senior Center, 455 Country Club Lane.
Recycling containers can be found at each of the club’s meeting, and at the club’s monthly luncheons. The used fishing line is collected, and sent to the Berkley fishing supply company, where its recycled into fish habitat in fresh water lakes around the country.
From the club’s first gathering of fishing line, they collected 10,056 yards. That is 5.71 miles of used fishing line. For more information on the club or its conservation efforts, visit osanglers.org.
