Source Reduction Plan in Port Douglas

Reducing Tackle Rubbish in Port Douglas

Tangaroa Blue as part of the ReefClean program are a part of a collaborative working group with many local community partners in the Port Douglas area and are working together with the Douglas Shire Council who are creating a Recreational Fishing Trail as part of their Fish for the Future Initiative.
After receiving feedback from the community we are now in the process of selecting trail locations and are planning to install tackle bins at key locations along the fishing trail to reduce fishing line litter and tackle rubbish in the local waterways as part of a Source Reduction Plan (SRP).
We were blown away by the amount of support from the community at recent market stall events about the installation of these tackle bins, so a huge thank you to all who contributed. We are excited to get this project under way and go one step further to keeping the #ReefClean
