Does braided fishing string hurt the environment more than regular monofilimant?

         It seems like monofilament causes the most problems, though it may just be because it is used more often. The underwater invisibility that makes it so useful as fishing line also makes it a hazard. Animals can get entangled in discarded monofilament line, or die from ingesting it. The line is also a problem for divers and swimmers.

         Neither kind of line is biodegradable, but there is a company in Iowa that recycles monofilament. The Monofilament Recovery and Recycling Program is working to set up recycling collection points. Biodegradable fishing line is also available.
