    I’m sure you know the recreational fishing regulation change that started 1 April 2023 re: floats:

    (Crab) Trap floats
    Primary trap floats must be:

    cylindrical or bullet shaped – New as of April 1, 2023
    highly visible and a minimum of 27 cm in length and 12 cm in diameter so they stay afloat in tides and currents – New as of April 1, 2023
    All trap floats must: be made of a durable material suitable for marine waters – New as of April 1, 2023
    be marked with only your name in legible and visible letters (at least 7.5 cm high) that are consistent in orientation on the float


    Like this I guess: My float

    In my years of beachcombing I’ve accumulated far too many floats – please take them from me for free! Let’s not  add to the world’s plastic waste – re-use instead!
