Champion angler to sell green marine products

Publish date:

Mariner's Choice International, a Florida manufacturer of ecologically safe products for the marine and other industry segments, signed a sales representative agreement with champion fisherman David Chong.

"Selling Mariner's Choice products seemed like a natural thing for me to do because I have been using and promoting the products at various events I participate in, such as at BassTalk seminars, over the last few years and believe in the performance and value they provide," Chong said in a statement.

He will primarily be covering Ontario, Canada, the company said.

The annual fishing derby Chong hosts for the Big Brothers Big Sisters of York is coming up in June, and Mariner's Choice will be there again as a sponsor.

"We are pleased to have David jump on board with us, as he is well-respected and liked by his peers and has a wide network of business connections in the fishing and boating industries," Mariner's choice president and CEO Amie Hingston said in a statement. "He will be targeting marinas, boat dealers, fishing tackle shops, and regional and national distributors. We are looking forward to working closely together to grow the sales in Ontario and beyond."
