Soft Plastics ~ Bangor Daily
« on: Feb 12, 2024, 06:17 AM »
"Bass can expel the baits either by regurgitation or through their waste stream within nine days, a state biologist said in the study. And water birds seem to be unaffected.

But trout and salmon eat the synthetic bait off the bottoms of lakes and ponds. The soft plastic potentially builds up in their stomachs, leaving little room for nourishing food. The more plastic, the less likely the fish are to feed, slowing their growth and development, one of the stateís fish biologists found."
