JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Sept. 9, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mariner's Choice International, Inc. (Pink Sheets:MCII), a North American manufacturer of an extensive line of ecologically-safe products for the marine and other industry segments, today announced that its West Coast distributor, Green Ocean Distributors Inc., is gaining sales momentum.

Green Ocean has been actively promoting the Mariner's Choice product line. In August, they participated at the Richmond Maritime Festival and at the Vancouver Wooden Boat Festival on Granville Island; and they will be at the Mosquito Creek Marina Boat Show, which opens today and continues throughout the weekend. As well, they have been demonstrating the products at various marinas, yacht clubs and retail stores over the past few months.

Their recent activities have been very successful, resulting in new retailers and wholesalers, as well as many new end-user customers."

"We have laid out an aggressive sales and marketing plan for the coming months, leading into the 2011 season. We will attend Seattle's Pacific Marina Expo in November, as well as Vancouver's International Boat Show in February. The quality and performance of the Mariner's Choice products give us such confidence to promote and sell them. The feature of the products being ecologically safe is a bonus that provides great added value," stated Lynda Bleasdale, president of Green Ocean.
