THE POLITICAL ARM OF MARINE CONSERVATION
The Center for Sportfishing Policy brings under a single umbrella the leading advocates for marine recreational fishing and boating to promote good stewardship of our nation’s marine resources with the broad ability to pursue a more direct political strategy. Our mission is to maximize the opportunity for saltwater anglers by engaging stakeholders to speak with one voice to shape federal fisheries policy.
By supporting CSP, our partners ensure that the interests of anglers in marine resources management are not lost in the noise of Washington D.C.
CSP is organized under Section 501(c)(4) of the Internal Revenue Code; accordingly, donations are not tax-deductible. Additionally, CSP has established the Center for Sportfishing Policy Political Action Committee (Center PAC), so that its members can fully participate in elective politics. CSP and Center PAC work to elect candidates to the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives who share our concern for America’s marine resources and support recreational fishing and boating.
CSP is a membership organization overseen by a Board of Directors. Committees facilitate its mission and report to the Board of Directors.
