Review for Recycled Fish, Council Bluffs, IA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I stumbled upon Recycled Fish a few years ago amidst my dissertation research on grassroots fisheries conservation. I was immediately inspired by their message and impressed by their work. Unlike other fishing based conservation/stewardship groups, Recycled Fish calls attention to all aspects of our lifestyle. Recycled Fish sends weekly "stewardship tips," that educate anglers about everything from composting, to shopping locally, to changing light-bulbs. In other words, the message is that everything we do, impacts our fisheries. This struck me as unique. Moreover, I was impressed by Recycled Fish because they preached stewardship to one specific group, like other fishing-based conservation organizations do. They preach a universal message of stewardship to all anglers, because the more anglers we have fighting for our waters the better off we will be in the long run. The message is broad and the audience is all encompassing. Recycled Fish is young in the grand scheme of things, but their vision is mature and forward thinking. We need more visionaries like Recycled Fish

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

putting future visions into action.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

encourage more anglers to take the stewardship pledge.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the diversity of people involved in the organization.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

gracious, outgoing, and inspiring.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

reach a lot of people and teach them not just to participate in a stream or river clean up, but to be a living, walking clean-up in every moment of their lives.

Ways to make it better...

and only if, more anglers joined and contributed to the cause.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

fund-raising in a difficult economic climate.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Recycled Fish is a young organization, with a bright and sustained future.
