Northern pike, Esox lucius, entangled with fishing line. Notice the deformed body because its growth has been limited by the nylon fishing lines. Many fishermen still throw damaged fishing gear into the water, including fishing lines, hooks and fishing floaters. In the rivers, lakes and at the sea they produce numerous animal entanglements. The animals can't get ride of it and develop terrible body deformation, deep wounds, and very often die in great suffering. Spain

Remarquez le corps déformé car sa croissance a été limitée par les lignes de pêche en nylon. De nombreux pêcheurs jettent encore dans l'eau des engins de pêche endommagés, notamment des lignes de pêche, des hameçons et des flotteurs de pêche. Dans les rivières, les lacs et la mer, ils produisent de nombreux enchevêtrements d'animaux. Les animaux ne peuvent pas s'en débarrasser et développent une déformation corporelle terrible, des plaies profondes, et meurent très souvent dans de grandes souffrances.
