Washington, D.C. – September 6, 2018 – On September 2, Sport Fishing Magazine identified “Five Companies that Give Back to the Fisheries,” highlighting organizations leading the way in conserving our nation’s natural resources, educating the public and supporting local communities. In addition, Sport Fishing praised several other companies that have demonstrated a commitment to philanthropic causes that enhance the environment and benefit the public good. The Center for Sportfishing Policy (CSP) is a proud partner of all five organizations identified by Sport Fishing—as well as most of the others honorably mentioned—and is grateful for the countless contributions they make to our industry and America’s millions of saltwater anglers.

“As shown in Sport Fishing Magazine, the recreational fishing and boating industry is at the forefront of conservation and committed to ensuring future generations can enjoy America’s public resources,” said Jeff Angers, president of the Center for Sportfishing Policy. “At CSP, we are proud of the dedication of our partners to clean oceans, healthy fisheries, conservation-focused policy and advocacy.”
