Review for The Sportfishing Conservancy, Long Beach, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This group is great. They understand that conservation and recreational fishing are compatible and work for realistic solutions. We need to find the middle ground between catching (and killing) every fish and turning the ocean into an aquarium. Too often rec fishermen are too busy yelling to work with the conservation community which is trying to maintain adequate fish populations -- so we can continue to fish.

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

California now has a Warden Stamp due to the efforts of this group - the stamp will buy equipment.

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

They understand that solutions have to be practical - not 'ideal' because people still need to drive, eat, etc.

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

Show that recreational fishermen are deeply concerned about the environment, introduce more kids to fishing (nature deficit disorder solution), help clean up the ocean.
