In pursuit of a sustainable recreational fishing future, acknowledging the invaluable contributions of key partners becomes essential. Rig Recycle proudly extends its gratitude and highlights the instrumental role played by B&C Plastics in propelling the vision of a circular economy forward.
In a first for the recreational fishing industry, Tasline partners with Rig Recycle, showing their dedication to circular production.
To top off an impressive year for Rig Recycle, the team was joined by B&C Plastics, Shimano, the Fisheries Research and Development Corporation (FRDC) for a remote clean-up supporting the Nanum Wungthim Land & Sea Rangers and Napranum community members at Pennefather Beach, just north of Weipa in Cape York.
Project ReCon tracks and retrieves first deadly and destructive ghost gear 4 kms off the coast from Weipa
The first ghost gear has been tracked by Tangaroa Blue’s Project ReCon team and retrieved by Indigenous rangers 4 kms off the coast of Weipa.
With the support of Satlink, the Project ReCon team repurposed an echo sounder buoy, which was recovered during a recent clean-up, to track and monitor the 3 tonnes of discarded commercial fishing gear while the Indigenous rangers, Australian Border Force and Carpentaria Contracting mobilised to collect it.
We recently unveiled our latest innovation, the Rig Recycle ‘Tackle Back’ product, in partnership with Shimano at the 2023 AFTA Tackle Show on the Gold Coast.
The ‘Tackle Back’ is designed to empower recreational fishers in preserving their favourite fishing spots by responsibly disposing of fishing-related waste. Whether you’re an avid angler or a weekend warrior, this product will provide you with the means to keep our waterways clean and thriving.
