Welcome to the Great Monofilament Adventure, and what an adventure it has been!
About The Project
The State of Florida started the monofilament recycling project in 1999. They have 1,600 bins installed throughout the state collecting fishing line.
In Texas, the program was founded in 2004 and is coordinated by The Texas Sea Grant College Program which is a collaboration of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the State of Texas, and universities across the state.
Our chapter’s efforts are focusing on Galveston County.
