The Fishy Filaments Story

In 2016, Ian Falconer founded Fishy Filaments to address the environmental impact of discarded nylon monofilament fishing nets. The company recycles these nets into valuable resources using a freshwater and energy-based process. Around 200,000 to 400,000 tonnes of nylon monofilament are used annually, with little recycling. Most nets are either burned, buried, or lost at sea, taking over 6 centuries to degrade. Fishy Filaments aims to prevent this wastage and 'ghost netting' phenomenon by repurposing this durable plastic.
