NOVEMBER 2023 | Tangle bins initiative helps to keep Northern Territory fishing spots clean
In a first for the Northern Territory, OzFish Unlimited is installing tangle bins in high-traffic fishing spots around Darwin and Palmerston lakes to help keep these areas free of stray fishing gear. These permanent bins are being set up in eight designated areas where recreational fishers like to wet a line. OzFish will then recycle the discarded line and other fishing tackle as part of its Tackle Loop initiative. In collaboration with the Amateur Fishermen’s Association NT (AFANT) and with funding from the NT Recreational Fishing Grants Scheme, OzFish will be working with the fishing community to deliver this exciting program. AFANT CEO David Ciaravolo said his organisation was pleased to partner with OzFish on the project.
