COIR FISHING / Fishing tackle buoy

COIR FISHING
COIR FISHING

Fishery industries worldwide are responsible for tons of marine debris every year. Buoys in particular, are especially difficult to collect due to their floating nature. Introducing COIR FISHING, a novel eco-friendly buoy made with coconut fiber. No matter whether the buoy gets detangled during the fishing process, or abandoned alongside nets cast away in the far sea, COIR FISHING will, within a year, naturally biodegrade in seawater, thus achieving environmental sustainability.
