JACKSONVILLE, Fla., April 21, 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 they have signed a sales representative agreement with champion fisherman, David Chong.

David Chong has been a long-time supporter and promoter of Mariner's Choice. "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," said Chong.

He will be covering Ontario primarily, but has network throughout Canada, as well as in the U.S. The annual fishing derby Chong hosts for the Big Brothers Big Sisters of York is coming up in June ( http://www.catchadream.ca ), and Mariner's Choice will be there again, as a sponsor. This established event provides many young boys and girls an opportunity to enjoy a day of fishing with professional fishermen.

"We are pleased to have David jump onboard 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. 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," stated Amie Hingston, President and CEO of Mariner's Choice.
