"A group of volunteers in Glace Bay, N.S., says fishing gear blown ashore at a beach in nearby Donkin is a threat to birds and marine life and it plans to address the problem.
The Cape Breton Environmental Association also says other beaches across the island are affected by debris from the fishing industry.
Yates said the public is invited to the environmental association's community beach cleanup on June 30 from noon-3 p.m.
Coun. Amanda McDougall said the municipality will help the group dispose of debris from the beach."
