Hi, I am working with a brilliant group, Neptunes Army of Rubbish Collectors. they clear up after hobby anglers but now want to develop a program to reduce the discarded/lost line and fishing weights fouling the Welsh coastline and causing untold problems to local marine life. I reckon this is a prime candidate for some CBSM. Does anyone have any examples of successful projects in other parts of the world? Currently they are planning on running a series of angling education events involving getting children out fishing, teaching them the correct techniques and highlighting the issues
