Waterway cleanups

This underwater clean-up video demonstrates the effort it takes to remove and the excessive amount of discarded fishing line at the north jetty in Ponce Inlet. When left in the water, fishing line makes a dangerous web of debris that can entangle marine life in the area, like sea turtles and manatees.  Fishing along rocky structures, like jetties, can be difficult for even the most experienced fishermen who have to break the line if they get hooked onto a rock underwater. If this happens, please try your best to retrieve the broken line and recycle it in designated mono filament recycling bins.  These underwater clean up efforts are conducted monthly during the summer.
