BOATING AND FISHING CAN BE MORE “GREEN”

By campionboats | July 15, 2016

3 STEPS TO HELP MAKE BOATING MORE EARTH FRIENDLY

  1. Be Careful When Changing Oil   Make every effort to capture old engine oil, gear oil, hydraulic fluid and more. Contact your municipality to find out how and where to dispose of these fluids properly. A five-gallon pail with a lid makes a good ” capture and storage” vessel prior to disposal.

 

  1. ConsiderEarth-Friendly Products    Many marine products makers offer water-based and otherwise less toxic mixtures. Many of these products are readily available and no longer considered “new” and their effectiveness has now long been proven. Examples include bottom paints, soaps and cleaners.

 

  1. Don’t Discard Fishing Line   Even the most experienced angler gets a “bird’s nest” in his or her reel from time to time. Monofilament kills marine life and biodegrades slower than uranium so it is VERY important not to dump your access line in the water. Make sure to collect old or tangled line, and bring it back to land for a safe disposal.
