JACKSONVILLE, Fla., April 14, 2011 (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 it has begun a pilot test using MUNOX® for bioremediation in Trinidad.

MUNOX® was approved by the Ministry of Energy and Energy Affairs (MEEA) of Trinidad and Tobago, in January of this year. Mariner's Choice has since shipped and had the product clear through Ministry of Health and customs for use in that country. The pilot test is being conducted to satisfy the following: i) The performance level of MUNOX® with third-party verification lab tests; ii) Visual recording of the progress over a one-week period; iii) Presentation of the preliminary results to key decision makers within the industry, such as executives from oil refinery companies, government ministry representatives, environmental engineers and contractors; and iv) First hand information to share with clients, moving forward.

Our agent partner, Brian Fernandez, President of NRG Save Inc., is onsite to oversee the pilot test, which is a treatment of an approximately 100 square-foot section of a contaminated area. An ideal location has been selected based on a number of criteria that have been set out for conducting such a test. "We are very pleased to have this opportunity to personally bear witness to the performance of MUNOX®, and produce lab reports to verify and support it," Fernandez stated. "We are fully confident that the results will meet or exceed expectations, and with such undisputable documentation, we intend to move full speed ahead to promote and sell its use for bioremediation of oil spills throughout the Caribbean."

A number of immediate opportunities have already been identified in Trinidad. Orders for MUNOX® would be imminent with the successful completion of the pilot test.
