What about the bait market? Bait packaging tends to be taken into the fi shing environment,

and sadly, often left as litter... we asked about future plans... Howard Kaye, Marukyu: “Marukyu as a company take their ethical and environmental responsibilities very seriously indeed, whilst

more that we can do as the packaging industry develops even more sustainable solutions. We have already made a conscious

we currently still use single use packaging we (Marukyu worldwide) are currently exploring biodegradable substitutes as we realise the urgent need to do so. We are not yet in a position to swap to an environmentally sound alternative however in the near future we will be. When this occurs we will be the fi rst to let you know.”

Daryl Hodges, Dynamite Bait: “As with all aspects of our manufacturing we aim to ensure our impact on the environment is as low as possible. We have

made big steps forward on much more effi cient use of all utilities and lighting especially. We also always try and select and source our packaging with the environment in mind – of course there is

effort to change to more recyclable fi lm on some products. Over the next 2-3 years as packaging develops we will continue to look into other options that further reduce the impact on the environment.”

Allan Parbery, Mistral Bait: “I think that you’ll be pleased to know that all of the packaging we use

for the Mistral brand is recyclable and has been for many years. When we make OEM for other brands we try to ensure that we have an input into our customers packaging. I think we have been successful in getting the message across to people that the planet matters. A by product of using recyclable materials is that very often the pot or bag is of a much higher quality than just polythene. We don’t use any secondary packaging

either - we sell singularly, rather than making trade packs that quite often are made of polythene and not, or not easily recyclable.”

Hayley Goldsmith, Bait-Tech:“We do take the issue seriously and a large amount of our packaging is recyclable or has been made from recyclable materials. It is not 100 per cent of our packaging, however it is something we are working on. We work with a variety of packaging manufactures who pass on relevant information and I keep up to date with news from the packaging industry to keep me informed of new developments. They are certainly much closer with being able to deal with this issue than they were say three years ago. We are, or course limited by the advancements in two external industries: packaging and recycling. There certainly needs to be more funds available for effi cient recycling and more recycling plants across the world.”
