Arizona Bald Eagle Management Program

Monofilament Recovery Program

Fishing line can last up to 600 years in the environment. Improperly disposed fishing line can be consumed by, or entangle, many animals including mammals and migratory birds. It can also be hazardous to people hiking, swimming or diving, and to boats. The Arizona Game and Fish Department’s Monofilament Recovery Program encourages recreationists to properly dispose of used fishing line in trash containers or recycling bins to help reduce the risks discarded fishing line poses to wildlife and the environment. Regular cleanups can prevent ospreys, bald eagles, waterfowl, and pets from encountering dangerous and often lethal entanglement. Recycling bins are stationed at local license dealers, tackle shops, boating ramps, and recreation areas throughout Arizona.  

 

For more information on the Monofilament Recovery Program, visit the Southwestern Bald Eagle Management Committee's webpage.
